CBI court directs Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy to appear before it on January 10
A Special CBI court in Hyderabad has directed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy to appear before it on January 10 in connection with alleged ’quid pro quo’ investments into his firms.
The court gave the direction on January 3 while hearing a petition by him seeking exemption from personal appearance.
Ever since Mr. Reddy became the Chief Minister he has not appeared for the hearings citing his busy schedule as Chief Minister.
The court was hearing the case every Friday.
It had earlier rejected his plea to exempt him from appearing personally for the hearing. The CBI opposed it.
