The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) grilled jailed YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy for the third day on Tuesday while his two aides have also been summoned for questioning in an illegal assets case.
CBI officials took custody of Jagan, as the young leader is popularly known, from the Chanchalguda Central Jail in Hyderabad and shifted him to the agency’s office at Koti.
Congress legislator D Chandrasekhar Reddy and Sakshi TV director S Ramakrishna Reddy also reached the CBI office in response to the notices served by the CBI.
Chandrasekhar Reddy has reportedly worked as director in one of the companies owned by Jagan. He had recently called on Jagan’s mother YS Vijayamma to express his solidarity.
The CBI questioned him and Ramakrishna Reddy in the presence of Jagan about the investments received by Janani Infrastructure and Jagati Publications.
The CBI has so far questioned the Kadapa MP about the investments received from industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad in return for the land and other concessions given for his port project Vanpic.
He is believed to have been grilled about the investments that flowed from some companies based abroad into his Sandur Power and other firms.
Jagan, who was arrested by the CBI on May 27, allegedly conspired with his father and then chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy to dole out favours to companies which made investments into his businesses on quid pro quo basis.
