YS Jagan Mohan Reddy seem to be very much worried about the recent charge sheet filed by Enforcement Directorate. He has filed a petition in Hyderabad High court to give direction to the ED’s special court to suspend its trial till the CBI court takes a decision on the case filed on Jagan assets case.
Senior counsel D Prakash Reddy appearing for the petitioners contended that his clients were being tried for possessing some money which the ED was calling as crime money.
However the high court opined that there is no such facility available to the accused in ED cases at least to the knowledge of the judge hearing the case. The judge also pointed out to the petitioners’ counsel and disposed of the matter by giving directions to the CBI court.
Additional Solicitor General G Rajagopalan appearing for the ED said the procedure laid down under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act under which ED probe was made and charge sheets filed contemplated a joint trial. He requested the court to transfer the case to the ED court, so that a joint trail may be started.
