Jaganmohan Reddy has been accused in the case, along with his auditor V. Vijay Sai Reddy, former minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana Rao, industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad and bureaucrat K.V. Brahmananda Reddy; all of them have been lodged in the Chanchalguda central prison.
The charges relates to alleged investments made by individual investors and private firms in Mr. Jagan's companies as a quid-pro-quo for government favours when late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, his father, was Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.
They were produced before the court through a video conference.
Former AP Ministers Dharmana Prasada Rao and Sabitha Reddy, both accused in the case also summoned to the court. Jagan Reddy was arrested by the CBI last year on May 27 on corruption charges. Recently, after his indefinite fast against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, he was shifted to NIMS for treatment. He has now been taken back to the prison.
Meanwhile, a group of pro-Telangana lawyers 'gheraoed' the vehicle of Dharmana in the Nampally court premises and raised slogans in favour of the statehood. The police, however, managed to disperse the crowd.
