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

The YSR Congress president later moved the High Court and filed two bail petitions.

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.

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.
