The petition came to hearing in the court today. However, the counsel representing cbi sought more time to file their counter. The court gave them time till february 6th and posted the next hearing of the case to that day. The lawyer representing jagan asked the court for interim relief in court appearances. The court told him that they can inform the cbi court about the petition pending in the court and seek exemption.
In his petition in the high court, jagan said he was not in a position to personally attend the court proceedings every friday as he had the Constitutional responsibility of discharging his official duties in the capacity of the chief minister. Moreover, his regular visits to the court would also cause a huge burden on the state exchequer, as the official machinery had to make arrangements for his security and travel every week.
