HC closes petition on security to Jagan

The Andhra Pradesh High Court today closed the petition filed by YSR Congress Party President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s wife Y S Bharati who sought enhancement of security in the Chanchalguda Jail where he was lodged since May 28 in the disproportionate assets case against him. Mr Justice B Chandra Kumar, who heard the petition after Ms Bharati had stated that proper security was not being given to her husband, had sought an explanation from Prison officials. The Officials, while giving their explanation, said as per the jail manual necessary security was provided to the Kadapa MP as required and it will be increased after review of the situation, if necessary. Mr Justice Chandra Kumar, satisfied with the explanation given by the Jail authorities, closed the case by saying there was no need for further hearing on the petition.
