HYDERABAD: The High Court on Monday pulled up the CBI for arresting only Vijay Sai Reddy, one of the accused in the Jagan Mohan Reddy wealth case, while taking no such action against the others.

“”How many accused are there in the case and how many were arrested till date? Why was only one arrested as against a total of 17?” judge K C Bhanu asked while dealing with a petition moved by the agency contesting the bail granted to Vijay Sai Reddy, who looks after the financial dealings of some of Jagan Mohan Reddy’s companies.

After hearing CBI counsel P Kesava Rao’s argument that Vijay Sai Reddy might create hurdles to the investigation, the judge asked him to show him prima facie reasons for admission of the petition. He posted the hearing to April 18 and directed that a notice be served on Vijay Sai Reddy.

The CBI’s counsel argued that a lower court had granted bail to Vijay Sai Reddy without looking into the other aspects of the case.      

The special CBI court had on Friday granted conditional bail to Vijay Sai Reddy, and he was released from the Chanchalguda prison.
