Last Updated: Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 21:53

Hyderabad: CBI on Wednesday filed an application in
a local court seeking permission to conduct narco-analysis
tests on Vijay Sai Reddy, arrested in connection with the
disproportionate assets case against Kadapa MP, Y S Jaganmohan
Reddy.

Ravindhra Nath, CBI Deputy Legal Adviser, said the
application would come up for hearing on January 30.

Vijay Sai Reddy, arrested on January 2, had exclusive
knowledge of many issues, and was not cooperating with
interrogators, making the investigation difficult, the CBI
counsel said.

The Supreme Court, in a ruling in another case on May 5,
2010, had termed narco-analysis and polygraph tests as illegal
and violative of fundamental rights, if carried out against
the person`s wishes.

Ravindra Nath said that the court may issue notice to
Vijay Sai Reddy, seeking his stand.

Reddy is Vice-Chairman of Jagati Publications, owned by
Jagan.

In another development, CBI, which arrested Suneel Reddy
in Emaar-APIIC case last evening, filed a remand application
before the special CBI court, seeking 15-day custody. It will
be heard on January 27.
