A special CBI court on Monday summoned YSR Congress party leader and MP, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, to appear before it on May 28 in connection with an illegal assets case.
The court also asked 12 others facing charges in the case to appear before it on the same day.
The special CBI court had admitted the first chargesheet filed on March 31 by CBI in the disproportionate assets case and listed the case for trial.
Accordingly, summons were issued to Jagan, the prime accused in the case, and the other accused persons.
The summons were issued on a day when CBI, probing the case against Jagan and the others, submitted its third chargesheet in the court. The 88-page chargesheet was filed after examining 72 witnesses. Jagan has been accused of conspiring with his father and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy to dole out several favours to certain companies in return for the investments they made in his businesses.
The CBI booked Jagan Reddy and 73 companies and individuals in August last year on the directions of the high court. Others named in the chargesheet are Jagan Reddy's close aide Vijay Sai Reddy, Jagati Publications Private Limited (JPPL), Ayodhya Rami Reddy, IAS officer Venkatrami Reddy, and Ramkey Pharma.
The third chargesheet contains details of undue favours granted to a company called Ramky Pharma during Jagan's father and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Rajashekhar Reddy's regime. Ramky Infra has been accused of depositing a huge sum of money in the accounts of Jagathi Publications owned by Jaganmohan Reddy.
Vijay Sai Reddy was arrested by the CBI on January 2. The Vice-President of JPPL is also an auditor for many other companies of Jagan Reddy
