The CBI is preparing to file its final chargesheet in Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s assets case soon. Before it files the final chargesheet, the agency is likely to submit a supplementary chargesheet with the special court for CBI cases on Monday.
The supplementary chargesheet is likely to be filed with respect to the first chargesheet filed last year. The investigation agency had named Jagan Mohan Reddy, the firms owned by him, his financial advisor V Vijay Sai Reddy and some pharma companies as accused in the first chargesheet. Though there is slim chance of more persons or firms being shown as accused, sources said CBI might add witnesses in supplementary chargesheet.
The CBI had already filed four chargesheets in the case and had been directed by the Supreme Court to file the final chargesheet with respect to the seven aspects of investigation into the case. When the bail petition of Jagan Mohan Reddy came before the Supreme Court, the CBI informed the apex court that it would file the final chargesheet at the earliest. Even during the arguments over various petitions before the special court for CBI cases, the CBI had been informing the court it would file a single chargesheet after completing its probe.
In tune with its promise to the apex court to wind up the probe early, the CBI questioned recently KVP Ramachandra Rao, a close aide of Jagan’s father and former chief minister the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
