Disproportionate assets case: CBI arrests Jaganmohan Reddy
Hyderabad, May 27 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested the YSR Congress (YSRC) chief Jaganmohan Reddy after three days of intense grilling in the disproportionate assets case, even as YSRC has alleged a conspiracy by the Congress and the Telugu Desum Party (TDP).
Reddy, grilled for about seven and half hours here was arrested around 07:20 p.m. on Sunday at Dilkusha Guest House, the CBI camp office.
YSRC spokesperson Ambati Rambabu has, meanwhile, alleged "political conspiracy" by the Congress and the TDP.
The Kadapa parliamentarian, who arrived at the CBI office at 10:30 a.m., was accompanied by Congress MP and Jagan supporter Sabbam Hari and Congress legislators Alla Nani and S Krishna Rao.
Anticipating unrest, police has stepped up security across the state, while the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) is considering withdrawal of bus services in some sensitive districts of the state.
Local police had already issued prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), banning assembly of five or more persons.
Jagan is accused of conspiring with his father to dole out favours to companies that invested in his businesses in a quid pro quo arrangement.
Reportedly, Jagan's mother, Vijayamma, is expected to lead the party in his absence. (ANI)
