Hyderabad: A CBI court on Wednesday extended the judicial custody of YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy, and other accused till August 14 in separate case.
The remand was extended by the court after it expired today -- in the disproportionate assets case against Jagan, in illegal mining case against Reddy, and in APIIC-Emaar land deal case -- through video-conference.
