Reacting on High Court dismissing YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bail petition, YSRCP Spokesperson Vasireddy Padma said ‘CBI contending that State Government is not cooperative in completing the investigation speaks of its malafide intentions. It did not bring in this point on the earlier occasions and it seems that CBI has been functioning in a highly questionable manner’.
CBI did not broach the issue of non-cooperation of government when the bail process went through the CBI special court to the apex court. With the investigation agency toeing that line now, we are apprehensive that it wants to keep our leader away from the people for a longer period. Eight months have passed since the arrest of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and 18 months have passed since it began the investigation, still the country’s premier investigation agency could not find proper evidence that could stand the legal scrutiny, she said. Though CBI had assured the courts that it will complete the investigation process within three months, it could not complete the process nor could it gather evidence against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, she said.
