Hyderabad: YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday withdrew his bail plea from the Supreme Court on technical Grounds. The petition was to come up for hearing on Monday in the apex Court in an illegal assets case.
Earlier, a special court had dismissed a petition by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) last week for a narco test on Jagan and his aide Vijay Sai Reddy in an illegal assets case.
The CBI had filed the petition last month, saying the accused were not cooperating in the investigations.
The agency argued that there was no other option left with them but to subject Jagan and his auditor to narco-analysis, polygraph and BEAP (Brain Electrical Activation Profile) tests to ascertain facts related to the case.
The CBI told the court that the two were not revealing any information with regard to the conspiracy they hatched.
Jagan and Vijay Sai Reddy were the beneficiaries of the 'hawala' operations and other financial transactions involving routing of ill-gotten money invested by companies and individuals into Jagan's businesses, the probe agency said.
In February this year, the special court dismissed the CBI petition for narco-analysis and other tests on Vijay Sai Reddy, auditor of the companies owned by Jagan.
The CBI arrested Jagan May 27 on the charges that he conspired with his father and then chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy to dole out favours to companies and individuals who invested in his firms.
