Hyderabad: A special CBI court here today extended till August 12, the judicial remand of YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy and other accused in connection with the case pertaining to quid pro quo deals involving the Kadapa MP.

Jagan, and other accused including his auditor V Vijay Sai Reddy and former minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana Rao, presently lodged in Chanchalguda Central Prison here were produced before the court through video-link which extended their remand by another 14-days.

The court also extended the remand of industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad and bureaucrat KV Brahmananda Reddy till the same date.
