The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a petition by YSR Congress leader Y S Jaganmohan Reddy,challenging the legality of his arrest in a disproportionate assets case lodged by the CBI. A Bench of Justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana Prakash Desai,however,issued a notice to the CBI on a separate petition by Reddy,seeking bail in the matter.
The SC issued notice to the CBI after senior counsel Ram Jethmalani,appearing for Reddy,submitted that various principles relating to grant of bail set by the Supreme Court had been overlooked by the Andhra Pradesh High Court and a CBI court judge while denying him the relief.
