The CBI court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy till October 9 in the alleged corruption case. Judicial custody of former minister Mopidevi Venkataramana, former bureaucrat K Brahmananda Reddy, and industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad were also extended till October 9.
The court had directed the police to produce them before it after it took cognizance of the fourth chargesheet filed by the probe agency. The fourth chargesheet is related to the land allotment to Vadarevu and Nizampatnam Port and Industrial Corridor (Vanpic).
Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao, who was Revenue minister in the YSR government, was named in the chargesheet for circumventing laws to help Nimmagadda Prasad receive 15,000 acres for Vanpic project. For this favour, Prasad allegedly invested Rs 500 crore in Jagan's businesses.
Anticipating arrest, Dharmana Prasad met Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Monday and urged him to accept his resignation. The minister appeared in the court on Tuesday and furnished a personal bail bond of Rs 25,000.
