HYDERABAD: The CBI on Tuesday sought permission from the special court to interrogate suspended IAS officer Y Srilakshmi and former director of mines and geology department VD Rajgopal in connection with Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's illegal assets case.
The agency has sought permission for examining them at the Chanchalguda jail, on the ground that it had collected some documents from the mines and geology department, which had been processed by the two officers.

At present, both are in judicial custody, and lodged in Chanchalguda Central Prison.
The CBI on Tuesday filed a fresh petition seeking permission to interrogate Srilakshmi and Rajgopal in the jail premises. The court posted the hearing on the petition to February 16.
