Breather For Jagan, CBI Plea For Cancellation Of Bail Dismissed
Hyderabad: The CBI court has rejected the CBI plea to cancel YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bail. Giving its decision on Friday, the court has said the argument of the CBI is untenable. The court has earlier reserved its judgment after hearing the arguments.
The CBI in its petition has cited the interview of former Chief Secretary of undivided Andhra Pradesh, Ramakant Reddy, aired recently by Sakshi TV. The interview was part of the series of interviews in the programme ‘ Manasuloo Maata’. The interviewer was a senior journalist Kommineni Srinivasa Rao. Ramakant a Reddy has commented on the unprofessional way in which the investigation was done by the CBI. Ramakant Reddy is a witness in the CBI cases against Jagan Mohan Reddy. Citing those comments the CBI has filed a petition requesting the court to cancel the bail earlier granted to Jagan Mohan Reddy as the latter was trying to influence a witness.
The judge made it clear that the bail cannot be cancelled basing on the evidence produced by the CBI.
The judge has also permitted Reddy to go out of the country for a holiday along with family members. In fact, the judge, M Venkata Ramana, has put a condition that Jagan Mohan Reddy should take his family with him in his trip to New Zealand. Reddy has asked the court for permission to abroad for 15 days between May 15 and June 15.
