Supreme Court notice on favours to Jagan`s firms
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice on 26 government orders issued during the tenure of late Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Rajashekara Reddy to allegedly favour the business interests of his son, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, due to which he and others had amassed disproportionate assets.
The notice was issued to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), six Andhra Pradesh ministers and eleven IAS officers serving in the state at the time.
An apex court bench headed by Justice Dalveer Bhandari issued notice on a petition by Nellore-based advocate Sudhakar Reddy seeking a probe into the government orders favouring Jaganmohan Reddy, a Lok Sabha MP.
The petitione has challenged a Andhra Pradesh High Court order rejecting a probe. A special CBI court in Hyderabad had also rejected the plea.
Sudhakar Reddy contended that the investigation into the disproportionate assets could not be confined to Jaganmohan Reddy, but should also include the role of the ministers and bureaucrats in facilitating his business dealings.
