Jagan bail Cancellation petition by CBI
The CBI officials have filed a petition which was accepted by the CBI Court requesting the cancellation of bail to Jagan in connection with the disproportionate Assets case.Telugu360 has accessed the petition filed by CBI to comprehend the reasons for the serious action based on mere an interview of Former Chief secretary Mr. P.Ramakanth Reddy I.A.S.
The reasons are quite interesting, MR. Ramakanth had flip flopped on his words. During the course of the investigation, he witnessed against Jagan, but in the recent sakshi media interview, he spoke for the accused. This has triggered the ire of CBI, which other wise wouldn’t care if some one else ( than a witness) talks in media. Sakshi media appears to be blundered by interviewing one of the prime witnesses in Jagan’s case when case is in trial phase.
Role of P.Ramakanth Reddy during the investigation:
P.Ramakanth Reddy is a 1973 batch Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officer who was Finance Secretary and later became Chief Secretary during Y.S.Rajashekar Reddy’s regime.He is prime witness in Vanpic case (4th Charge sheet) and Indu Tech Zone (9th charge sheet) who mentioned that misdeeds transpired.
The CBI petition reads that,during the course of investigation Ramakanth Reddy clearly pointed out the irregularities committed in processing the files which were against the principals of the rules of business and the appurtenant responsibilities of the respective public servants on violation.
Ramakanth Reddy’s Sakshi Interview:
The interview was pre-recorded and aired on Sakshi News Channel and the contents have been published in Sakshi Daily Newspaper on 26th Feb 2017. The former IAS officer said that Jagan never wrote a letter or got in touch with him over phone seeking favours.In his interview Ramakanth stated that he asked then CBI JD two questions whose responses made him say “I don’t trust your investigation”. As per his observations CBI is unaware of the rules and procedures of AP secretariat or the Chief Secretaries.
CBI Petition on cancellation of bail to Jagan:
The CBI in its latest petition clearly stated that Jagan has been delaying the trail at this stage of arguments on charges by giving various reasons to prolong the proceedings on one pretext or the other. Further, CBI accused Jagan has influenced or dissuaded Mr P.Ramakanth Reddy.
M/S Jagathi Publications which is listed as accused in the case,interviewed the witness Ramakanth Reddy. CBI said that the witness made unjustified observations and comments, conflicting with the statements given before CBI. It also said that such statements will damage the course of pending trial against Y.S Jagan and others. They mentioned that the CS undoubtedly stated that the cases would not withstand the judicial scrutiny
CBI termed the statements of Ramakanth regarding the mode of investigation and fate of the case as “unwarranted”.
As Jagan was released on conditional bail,the second condition of the bail states “The Petitioner/A1 shall not directly or indirectly make any inducement threat or promise to any person acquainted with the facts of the case so as to dissuade him to disclose such facts to the court or to any other authority”
Since Ramakanth is main witness in the two charge sheets against Jagan, by telecasting and publishing the interview, the YCP leader has violated the second condition of the bail, which subsequently led to filing of the petition by CBI.
Mr.Jaganmohan Reddy is in trouble clearly, it will be an interesting legal battle for him next two three weeks.
