The CBI, probing the alleged disproportionate assets case involving YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy here in Hyderabad, has said it could file a supplementary chargesheet in the case.
The central agency made this submission before a special CBI court here while seeking extension of judicial remand of Jagan and other accused.
The supplementary chargesheet is likely to be filed against three pharma companies after the CBI during its investigation collected more details against them.
The court, in the meanwhile, extended the judicial remand of Jagan, former Andhra Pradesh Excise Minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana Rao, industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad, IRAS officer KV Brahmananda Reddy (all accused in Vanpic aspect of Jagan assets case) till April 8, after they were produced before it through video-conference from Chanchalguda Central Prison where they are currently lodged.
Andhra Pradesh Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao, also an accused in the case, appeared before the Principal Special Court for the CBI cases. Jagan was arrested by CBI on May 27 last year on corruption charges and has been lodged in Chanchalguda Jail since then.
Meanwhile, the court also extended till April 1 the judicial custody of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy, his brother-in-law B V Srinivas Reddy and Gali’s close associate K Mehfuz Ali Khan- all accused in the Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) scam case, till April 15.
It also extended the judicial remand of Sunil Reddy, an accused in the Emaar scandal till April 8.
The CBI has accused Jagan of getting huge investments from various individuals and firms into his businesses as quid-pro-quo for the favours granted by the then government headed by his father and chief minister (late) YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
The CBI has so far filed four chargesheets against Jagan and others.
The investigating agency has accused that Jagan and his late father hatched a conspiracy to defraud the state government, wherein Jagan influenced the senior Reddy in doling out certain favours to various stake-holders, who made investments of several crores into Jagan’s businesses (at very high premium) as a quid-pro-quo.
