Hyderabad: After spending 16 months in jail, YSR Congress Party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy got a big relief on Monday as the Special Court for CBI cases granted him conditional bail. The Judge, U Durga Prasad Rao asked Jagan to furnish two surety bonds for Rs 2 lakh each and two additional sureties from two other persons. Jagan was also asked to surrender his passport and not to leave Hyderabad until further orders issued.
The issue of bail followed the CBI submission before the special court that the investigation into the investments routed to companies floated by Jagan, taken up at the behest of the High Court, was completed. The CBI also informed the special court that there was no evidence to prove quid pro quo deals with companies such as Sandur Power, Jubilee Media Communications, Mantri Developers, Caramel Asia, PVP Business Ventures, Classic Reality, Brahmani Infratech , R R Global and Sarawati Power.
As the CBI declared that the investigation phase of the case was over, Jagan’s lawyer Sushil Kumar contended that bail was the fundamental right and Jagan should be considered for grant of bail. He argued that Jagan should not be deprived of bail even after spending 16 months in jail, just because of his stature.
The conditions set by the court while granting the bail were that he should “not directly or indirectly make any inducement, threat or promise to any person acquainted with the facts of the case so as to dissuade him to disclose such facts to the court” and he should not leave Hyderabad without prior permission of the Court.
The petitioner should appear before the court on the days fixed for hearing of the case without fail. He may remain absent only in unavoidable circumstances and with the permission of court. The CBI would have the liberty to make proper application for cancellation of the bail of the petitioner violated any of the conditions imposed by the court.
Jagan to come out today
Jagan will be released on bail from the jail on Tuesday after executing a bond for Rs 2,00,000 with two sureties each for like sum to the satisfaction of the court. The formalities would be fulfilled on Tuesday morning to secure his release said the YSRCP sources.
The investigating agency CBI has filed 10 charge-sheets against Jagan and others who are allegedly involved in Jagan’s disproportionate assets case. CBI also informed the court last week that it had completed investigation in the Jagan case. It had alleged in the charge-sheets that the investments in Jagan companies were made as a ‘quid pro quo’ for government favours when his father YS Rajasekhara Reddy was the Chief Minister during 2004- 09. Jagan’s wife YS Bharathi and his supporters all present in the court had tension filled moments before the judge pronounced bail to the YSR party leader.
Jagan was arrested by the CBI on May 27, 2012, and has been lodged in Chanchalguda Central Jail in Hyderabad since then. Earlier on May 9, the Supreme Court said Jagan could apply for bail only after the final charge-sheets are filed by the CBI into the cases.
