Hyderabad: The CBI, probing the cases relating to Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and Emaar Properties, on Sunday thoroughly questioned V Vijay Sai Reddy, vice chairman of Jagati Publications, a senior official said.
"CBI is continuing the investigation in both the cases. Vijay Sai Reddy was on Sunday questioned," CBI Joint Director V V Lakshmi Narayana said.
The agency, which is investigating the investments made by various firms into the businesses of Jagan during his father's (Y S Rajasekhara Reddy) tenure as Chief Minister, and also the "irregularities" in APIIC-Emaar Properties land deal, had registered the cases on August 17.
The FIR lists Jagan, now the president of YSR Congress, as the number one accused, followed by V Vijay Sai Reddy, vice-chairman of Jagati Publications (which runs Sakshi TV and Sakshi Telugu daily owned by Jagan).
In the FIR, CBI has accused Jagan of "conspiring" with his father and other individuals and companies to "cheat the government of Andhra Pradesh in the matter of granting certain favours to many companies".
In all, the FIR names 72 companies and individuals besides directors, promoters of unknown companies, unknown public servants of the state government and "unknown others" as the accused.
In the case pertaining to the Emaar deal, the CBI has alleged that B P Acharya, senior IAS officer and former Chairman and Managing Director of Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC), who is now the state's Principal Secretary (Home), entered into a criminal conspiracy with officials of Emaar Group and unknown public servants to cheat APIIC, to secure a wrongful gain to Emaar.
