The CBI special court on Monday adjourned hearing to July 5 on the CBI's petition for judicial custody of former ministers Sabitha Indra Reddy and Dharmana Prasada Rao in Jagan assets case.
Principal special judge U Durga Prasad Rao, while hearing the memos filed by the two ministers on the media statements made by them after submitting their resignation from the state Cabinet, said he would go through the CDs presented by the investigating agency and if there is any scope for filing a counter, then he will allow the two to do so.
The CBI court had earlier directed the investigating agency to submit before the court the full footage of the media statements made by the two leaders. The court has also asked them to get the authenticity of the disk contents certified by respective TV channels. As per the court’s direction, the investigating agency submitted the CDs of the footage telecast on NTV and TV9 channels.
Earlier, the CBI court had issued notices to the two and responding to the notices, they had filed a memo asking the court to order the CBI to produce the original CDs containing the statements made by them. The two ministers had alleged that the CD submitted by the CBI was edited and unclear, and made from online video website YouTube.

Jagan, Nimmagada Prasad, Vijay Sai Reddy, Gali Janardhan Reddy, OMC MD Srinivas Reddy and others attended the court through video conference.
