DA case: Andhra HC rejects Jagan's bail plea

Last Updated: Thu, Jan 24, 2013 13:51 hrs

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday dismissed YSR Congress president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy's bail petition in connection to a disproportionate assets case.

The court on Dec 24 had rejected Jagan´s bail petition in connection to the same case.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Nov 28 had dismissed Jagan´s statutory bail petition.

His second bail plea was also dismissed on Dec 4.

Jagan received a blow in October when the Supreme Court rejected his bail plea in the disproportionate assets case.

The CBI had arrested Jagan on May 27 last year.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court ordered a CBI probe into Jagan´s wealth on Aug 11, 2011 after Congress leader P Shankar Rao filed a written petition in Nov 2010 seeking it, terming his property as "ill-gotten".

Jagan´s father YSR Reddy, who was a Congress strongman and chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, died in a helicopter crash in 2009.
