Arguments on Jagan’s statuory bail !

The arguments in YSR Congress Party President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy statutory bail application concluded in the Andhra Pradesh High Court today.

Mr Justice B Seshasayana Reddy heard the arguments presented by counsels for Mr Jagan and the CBI.He will pronounce his order on Monday.

Mr Jagan’s counsel contended the CBI’s argument that his client was arrested only in VANPIC Case was not true. CBI counsel and Additional Solicitor General from Delhi Harish Rawal said the matter of statutory bail (accused being eligible for bail after 90 days of arrest if the charge sheet was not filed within the period) was argued at length in Supreme Court and hence, cannot be raised again. Mr Jagan in his statutory and regular bail petitions in the court contended he had the statutory right of getting bail as the CBI had failed to file the charge-sheet within the stipulated time frame of 90 days.

Earlier, the Principal Special CBI Court had rejected the bail petitions of the Kadapa MP. The Apex Court, a few months ago, had asked Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy to review his prayer for bail before the trial court after March 31, 2013 on completion of investigation and filing of charge sheets in seven issues related to him. Mr Jagan was arrested by the CBI on May 27, 2012 and presently under judicial remand in Chanchalguda Central Jail here.
