HYDERABAD: Another senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Saturday appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the case involving alleged illegal assets of YSR Congress party leader Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

K. Ratna Prabha, an IAS officer of Karnataka cadre who worked in Andhra Pradesh on deputation for last six years, was quizzed by CBI officials for over three hours at Dilkusha guest house, the camp office of the CBI, the agency's officials said.

The lady bureaucrat had worked as secretary in revenue, urban land ceiling and information technology departments when Jaganmohan Reddy's father Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister.

She is the third IAS officer to appear before the CBI in the case during the last three days. Former chief secretary P. Ramakanth Reddy and secretary, general administration, Ajay Mishra were questioned by the investigating agency with regard to the files signed by them.

The CBI believes many projects were approved during YSR's rule on a quid-pro-quo basis to favour companies which invested in the business of Jaganmohan Reddy, who is MP from Kadapa.

The CBI had taken up the investigations against Jaganmohan Reddy in August last year following directions from the state high court.

It had booked Jagan and 72 others. Jagan's aide and auditor Vijay Sai Reddy is the only person arrested in the case so far.
