Hyderabad: The judicial remand of Kadapa MP and YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy was today extended till December 5 by the special CBI court here in the disproportionate assets case against him.
The court also extended the remand of other accused, including former Andhra Pradesh excise minister Mopidevi Venkataramana Rao and VANPIC project developer Nimmagadda Prasad.
Proceedings were conducted through video-conference with Chanchalguda jail, where the accused are lodged.
The court also asked AP Minister for Roads and Buildings Dharmana Prasada Rao, one of the accused in `quid pro quo` case involving Jagan, to appear on December 5, as he did not appear before the court today.
Besides Dharmana Prasada Rao and Mopidevi, CBI has named 12 others in its fourth charge-sheet in VANPIC scam case, filed in August.
In another development, the court extended till December 5 the judicial remand of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy and others in the Obulapuram Mining Company case.
