High Court has dismissed Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s petition seeking exemption from individual attendance in the CBI court during the course of trail. He has been attending the CBI court every Friday as he is named as accused in 11 cases.
Jagan requested the court to excuse him from appearing before the CBI court regularly as he is the opposition leader in Andhra Pradesh and has to run errands in his role. He also said that his lawyers will be attending regularly on his behalf. But the CBI argued against Jagan’s plea and requested his presence in the court.
Apart from dismissing the YSRCP supermo’s plea and accepting the CBI’s argument, Court noted that in future Jagan has to appeal in the CBI court in case of any such requests. This is a major setback for Jagan who is facing charges in the disproportionate assets case.
