Hitherto, the CBI was probing against Jagan only in his illegal assets case and had once interrogated him in connection with the Obulapuram Mining Company case.
But on Tuesday, the CBI authorities told the special court in the Nampally that they were suspecting that the corruption money of Emaar Properties project in Hyderabad might have been pumped into Jagan’s companies.
While opposing the bail petition of N Sunil Reddy, a close aide of Jagan, the CBI authorities alleged that it was Sunil who had taken most of the black money made through sale of villa plots in the Emaar project.
“We need to find out whether he had given the money to Jagan or diverted it to elsewhere,” the CBI said.
That is quite a serious allegation against Jagan. It is now pretty evident that the CBI is trying to drag Jagan into every scandal and corner him.
