Assets case: HC denies Jagan bail
Andhra Pradesh High Court Monday dismissed the bail petition of YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in connection with the case of alleged disproportionate assets involving him.
Jagan earlier moved the HC contending that he is entitled to bail as a matter of right as the CBI had not filed a chargesheet within the prescribed time. However, opposing Jagan's bail plea, the CBI had contended that the issue of statutory bail was argued at length in Supreme Court and the accused cannot raise the issue again. The CBI had further informed the HC that Jagan was arrested in a particular case of VANPIC deal alone and not yet in other aspects.
