HYDERABAD: The Special CBI Court in Hyderabad on Friday adjourned the hearing of the discharge petitions filed in the disproportionate assets case of YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy to October 6. Apart from prime accused Jagan, the other accused who included Rajya Sabha MP and auditor Vijayasai Reddy and senior officers also attended the special CBI court. During the course of hearing of the discharge petitions filed by Jagan and Vijay Sai Reddy seeking exemption from attending the court in cases pertaining to various companies allegedly involved in the quid-pro-quo deal, Jagan’s counsel Uma Maheshwar Rao told the Court that the investments into Jagathi publications were made as per the guidelines and that no witnesses of the CBI in their statements had not mentioned Jagan’s name and that no quid pro quo deals took place as was alleged by the CBI. He had not cheated anybody with regard to investments, he noted.
All the accused stayed throughout the day in the court. The special CBI court posted the matter to October 6 for further hearing. Elsewhere, the CBI court, while dealing with another case relating to Obulapuram mining scam, issued non-bailable warrant to Ali Khan, one of the accused and personal assistant of mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy, for failure to attend during the case hearing on Friday. The court rejected the application filed by Ali Khan seeking exemption from attending the court in view of ill health of his wife. Later in the evening, Ali Khan appeared before the court and it withdrawn its order against him.
