Jagan's family celebrated the order with prayers and distributed seats on Monday and will receive the leader at the time of the release. Jagan, a Lok Sabha MP from Kadapa, is the son of late Andhra Pradesh chief minister YSR Rajasekhara Reddy and had a major fallout with the Congress top leadership over the question of succession after his father's tragic death four years ago.
Jagan, who was arrested on May 27, 2012 in connection with disproportionate asset case, was granted bail by a CBI court on Monday, Sept 23. The court, while granting bail to Jagan, asserted that Jagan could not leave Hyderabad, would respond to court summons and pay a surety of Rs 2 lakh.
The disproportionate case relates to alleged investments made by private firms and individual investors in Jagan's companies as a quid pro quo for government favours when his father, late YS Rajasekhara Reddy was Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.
