Hyderabad, June 1: A special court here today will decide on the bail plea filed by YSR Congress leader Jaganmohan Reddy, who is currently in jail in connection with the alleged disproportionate assets case.
The court had earlier on Thursday reserved its orders till today on the bail plea.
The Court of Principal Special Judge for CBI cases had posted the matter to Friday after hearing arguments from the defence and prosecution
The CBI arrested Jagan late on Sunday evening after three days of intense grilling, sparking sharp reactions from his party and supporters.
Earlier Jagan’s mother Vijayamma wrote to Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi to direct the CBI to release her son in the larger interest of democracy.
She has pointed out in her letter that the CBI arrested Jagan on May 27, just 15 days before the by-polls.
“I am writing this letter with a great hope that you would kindly intervene with the CBI, which has, in complete disregard to the fact that Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, is leading the campaign on behalf of his Party for the upcoming bye-elections to 18 Assembly segments and one MP seat in our State, have arrested him most undemocratically on 27-5-2012, just 15 days before the bye-elections as part of a larger conspiracy to deprive his participation in the elections with the sole objective of helping the ruling Congress candidates,” said Vijayamma.
Before the arrest, Jagan said it was a conspiracy by the ruling Congress and the main Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to create a law and order situation to postpone the June by-elections.
Jagan is accused of conspiring with his late father to dole out favours to companies that invested in his businesses in a quid pro quo arrangement. (ANI)
