Hyderabad: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday filed two more charge-sheets in the disproportionate assets case against YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. The charge-sheets submitted in the special court for CBI cases pertain to the investments in Indu Projects and Lepakshi Knowledge Hub (LKH). Both the charge-sheets relate to quid pro quo investments in Jagan's companies.
The CBI has charged Indu Group with investing Rs 70 crore in Jagan's companies for the alleged favours it received when his father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was the Chief Minister. The government had allotted 8,848 acres to Indu Group, an infrastructure firm, in Anantapur district for developing the LKH. Indu Group was also allotted 250 acres at Shamshabad on Hyderabad outskirts for the Indu Tech Zone.
In the charge-sheet against LKH, the CBI named 13 persons as the accused. They are Jaganmohan Reddy, Vijay Sai Reddy, Syam Prasad Reddy, Indu Group, LKH chairman Shiva Balaji, BP Acharya, Syam Babu, Geetha Reddy, Dharmana Prasada Rao, Muralidhara Reddy, M Samuel, Prabhakara Reddy and Jagati Publications.
Those named in the charge-sheet against Indu Projects are: Jaganmohan Reddy, Vijay Sai Reddy, Syam Prasad Reddy, Indu Projects, Indu Tech Zone, SPR Projects, Ratna Prabha, BP Acharya, Sabitha Indra Reddy and Pardha Saradhi. They have been charged by the CBI with making investments as a quid pro quo arrangement, in exchange for alleged favours by the YSR government. So far, the CBI has filed 10 charge-sheets against Jagan and others accused in the case.
This includes the three charge-sheets filed on September 9 against Penna Cements, Raghuram (Bharathi) Cements and India Cements, naming its managing director N Srinivasan. The Jaganmohan Reddy 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 Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was Chief Minister. The CBI has accused Jagan of amassing huge wealth through illegal means by misusing the office of his late father YS Rajasekhara Reddy when he was Chief Minister.
Geetha may have to quit
Hyderabad: Minister for major industries J Geeta Reddy is likely to reign from the council of ministers following inclusion of her name in the latest charge-sheet filed by the CBI in the disproportionate assets case of Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. Two other ministers Dharmana Prasada Rao and Sabitha Indra Reddy had resigned in May when the CBI included their names in the charge-sheet.
When the CBI filed the charge-sheet in the CBI special court in the case relating to allotment of around 9000 acres of land in Anantapur district bordering Karnataka to the Lepakshi Knowledge Hub and 250 acres for an IT SEZ near Hyderabad international airport to Indus Tech Zone Pvt Ltd, the minister rushed to Hyderabad and met Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at his camp office. Ministers Kondru Murali and Dharmana Prasada Rao also participated in the meeting.
However, the minister left the camp office without talking to the media. It is being said that she would be consulting the party high command as well. The Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy is also likely to discuss the issue with the party high command president Sonia Gandhi when he would be visiting the state capital later this week.
