New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday sent letters rogatory against YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy's companies to London, Mauritius, Cyprus, Cayman Island, British Virgin Island and Isle of Man to get more information over investments made and received abroad.
Meanwhile, Jagan's mother YS Vjayamma began YSR Congress's bypoll campaign from Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday. Vijayamma met Jagan in Chanchalguda jail cell on Tuesday. She and her family have been sitting on dharna accusing the CBI of a witchhunt in order to prevent Jagan from campaigning for the bypolls that will take place on June 12.
"Jagan has been campaigning extensively and because the Congress fears of being routed in the bypolls, so they have put my son in prison. I will seek the people's mandate. People of Andhra Pradesh have seen how my family has been treated after my husband's death. I have faith in their decision," she told CNN-IBN.
"I had earlier written to Sonia Gandhi and the Prime Minister and now to the Chief Election Commissioner. I have knocked on all doors for justice for my family and now I am putting this matter before the people's court," she added.
A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials from Delhi on Tuesday arrived in Hyderabad to approach a local court for questioning Jagan who has been arrested by the CBI in a disproportionate assets case.
The Election Commission (EC) on Tuesday decided not to intervene in the matter concerning the arrest of Jagan, whose mother sought his release in view of the coming bypolls in Andhra Pradesh.
