Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy skipped the CBI Court Proceedings today as well. Last month, Jagan gave the court proceedings a miss citing the tour of a Union Minister. According to TV9, Jagan is in Hyderabad today to attend the marriage of Adoni MLA Sai Prasad Reddy but even then he did not attend the court.
He will be back to Amaravati this afternoon and will chair the YSR Congress Parliamentary Party Meeting later today. Jagan did not attend a single court hearing after the results have come citing one reason or the other. The CBI lawyer is likely to raise an objection in the court regarding this.
It is known to our readers that the CBI Court in Nampally had turned down the petition of the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister from Personal Appearances in the court. The court, however, allowed Jagan to get an exemption for a particular day which will granted basing on the reason for which it is sought.
Legal experts say that the court may not allow it forever unless Jagan gets some respite from the high court or the supreme court. In total CBI has filed 11 cases for criminal conspiracy, cheating, dishonesty, accepting bribe, forgery and criminal misconduct. The Enforcement Directorate(ED) has filed 7 cases relating to money laundering. The court already opined that Jagan is not co-operating in the trial.
