A local CBI court today extended till July 4 the judicial remand of YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in connection with a disproportionate assets case.
Jagan, who appeared before the judge through video conference from Chanchalguda prison where he is lodged, had earlier requested the court that he be allowed to appear in the court in person.
However, the court rejected his memo and directed the prison authorities to produce him through video conference.
When Jagan was last produced before the court, the police brought him in a police van, instead of the bullet-proof vehicle it used earlier.
Objecting to the manner in which he was brought to the court, Jagan had complained to the court and said despite being an MP and president of a political party, he was treated like an ordinary criminal though he was still an accused and no charge against him was proved yet.
CBI, probing the assets case against Jagan, had arrested the 39-year-old MP on May 27.
The probe agency, in its three charge-sheets filed against Jagan and others, had alleged that he and his father hatched a conspiracy to defraud the government, and the state government granted some favours to certain firms, which made investments in Jagan's businesses as a quid pro quo.
Meanwhile, in APIIC-Emaar case, the court extended the remand of suspended IAS officer B P Acharya till July 4. He was also presented before court through video conferencing.
