A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Hyderabad summoned YSR Congress Party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to appear before it on May 28 in connection to a disproportionate assets case.

The court directed 12 others, who are facing charges in connection to the case, to appear before it on the same day.

The CBI on Monday filed its third supplementary chargesheet against Jagan in a special CBI court in the disproportionate assets case.

Jagan has been named as the prime accused in the chargesheet.

According to CBI sources, the 88-page chargesheet include 142 documents and 72 witness accounts.

Five others apart from Jagan have been named as accused in the case.

Several people, including Indian Administrative Service officer Venkatarami Reddy, Jagati Publications (publisher of Sakshi Telugu daily), Ramky Group chairman Ayodhyarami Reddy and Ramky Pharma India Limited, weren named as accused in the case.

According to sources, the undue favours given to a company named Ramky Infra during the regime of ex-Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajashekhar Reddy was mentioned in the third chargesheet.

The CBI on Monday filed a petition in the state High Court challenging the order given by special court to grant bail to Jagan´s auditor Vijaya Sai Reddy.

The petition will be heard on May 9.

The CBI earlier filed two chargesheets in connection to the case.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court ordered a Central Bureau of Investigation (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".
