CBI court directs AP CM to appear before it 10 Jan

A Special CBI court here has directed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy to appear before it on 10 January in connection with alleged 'quid pro quo' investments into his firms.The court gave the direction while hearing a petition by him seeking exemption from personal appearance. Ever since Jagan became the Chief Minister he has not appeared for the hearings citing his busy schedule as CM. It had earlier rejected his plea to exempt him from appearing personally for the hearing. The CBI opposed it. Jagan was released on bail from the Chanchalguda jail here in September 2013 after being in prison for 15 months following his arrest in May 2012 in related cases.
