hyderabad: Principal special judge BR Madhusudan Rao of hyderabad CBI court on Friday brushed aside objections raised by the registry over maintainability of a plea moved by Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
jagan was urging the court to allow his lawyer to represent him and exempt him from court appearances in the cases filed against him by CBI. The judge directed the registry to number the plea and said the matter would be heard on merit on September 27. It may be recalled similar pleas of jagan in 2014 and 2016 seeking exemption from court hearings in view of his obligations to be fulfilled as opposition leader towards people were rejected by both the CBI court and Telangana high court.
jagan, who is now a chief minister, filed a plea under section 205 of CrPC urging the court to allow his lawyer to represent him in view of his bounden duties. The court sought to know from jagan as to how his petition can be heard by a trial court in the given background. Arguing the case of jagan, senior counsel S Niranjan Reddy said that a second plea in the same trial court is very much maintainable as there is a huge change in the set of facts and circumstances between the past and current period.
“Section 205 is not a one-time exercise and can be used multiple times,” he said. When the high court heard the matter in 2016 and rejected the plea, it did not object to the second plea, Niranjan recalled. “It was heard on merits of the case and was dismissed,” he contended.
60 Lakhs For Every Jagan's Hyderabad Visit for Cases? Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is demanding a permanent exemption from personal appearance in the cases in which he is the prime accused. The arguments on this petition have finished the other day and the CBI court posted the judgment to November 1st.
