YSR Congress Party on Thursday complained Governor ESL Narasimhan against CBI alleging that the investigation agency was performing its duties under the instructions of ruling Congress and TDP to destroy political future of YSR party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
A 9-member YSRCLP delegation led by B Shobha Nagi Reddy submitted memorandum to Governor and urged him to ensure that justice is done to Jagan. They alleged that the CBI made a mockery of criminal law by filing several chargesheets under section 173 (2) Cr Pc as per which only one chargesheet can be filed for each FIR registered. Instead, the CBI filed 5 regular chargesheets. 'What is even more appalling is the fact that the CBI filed the first three chargesheets in the court without even once summoning Jagan for investigation.'
The YSR party MLAs explained Governor that the more shocking is the complete overlooking of the provisions under section 167 Cr Pc, which is enacted as a sequel to Article 21 whereby an accused in a FIR detained by police has to be invariably released on bail if the investigation in respect of crime is not completed in 90 days. Jagan has been in detention for over 365 days.
Accusing the CBI of relying on the 'reckless' propaganda of TDP rather than on the outcome of its investigation, the MLAs said the vehemence with which the CBI opposed the bail petition of Jagan in the Supreme Court was unprecedented. The CBI was going to the extent of misleading the court by placing completely baseless facts before them. Just to mislead the courts, the investigative agency repeatedly makes unfactual allegations that Jagan was involved in a huge scam of Rs 43,000 crore.
