CBI given green signal to attach Jagan's properties


YS Jaganmohan Reddy
New Delhi, May 19: There seem to be more trouble in store for YSR Congress Chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy as the Andhra Pradesh government has given its go-ahead to attach the properties of Jagan in the disproportionate assets case. The CBI will now attach the properties of Reddy-owned Jagati publications. The occasion also saw the AP Home Minister being questioned in relation to the case.

Meanwhile, Jagan's camp is alleging that their leader is being targeted in lieu of the forthcoming by elections in the state. The AP government gave its nod to the CBI to attach the properties of Jagati Publications, Indira Television and Janani Infrastructure Company through three separate orders. The said companies are owned and promoted by Jagan.

According to sources, the proceedings for the attachment will take time as the CBI will first have to identify the properties and then file a detailed petition in the special court. The state government has taken legal help for granting permission to attach Jagan's properties.

The investigating agency had earlier established that a whooping amount of Rs 1,170 crore came into Jagati publications account through various quid pro quo deals. The CBI has already frozen the bank accounts of Jagati publications which publishes the hugely popular Sakshi Telugu daily, Indira Television which runs Sakshi news channel and Janani Infra during the course of an investigation.

The state government has also given its green signal to attach the properties of industrialist Koneru Prasad and Jagan's close aide Sunil Reddy in the Emaar Properties scam. Both of them are currently in jail for their involvement in the Emaar scam.
