Vanpic case not part of Jagan case:CBI

As the AP High Court continued to hear the bail petition of  Vanpic (Vadarevu and Nizampatnam Port and Industrial Corridor) case accused Nimmagadda Prasad, more facts about the ‘no relation’ of  YSR Congress Party president Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy to the case are coming out.

CBI counsel Kesavara Rao told the High Court on Thursday that the Vanpic case is completely different from the Jagan properties case. It may be recalled that the CBI counsel informed Justice Samudrala Govindarajulu on Wednesday that Jagan had nothing to do with the Vanpic case.

On the third day of hearing of the bail petition of Nimmagadda Prasad, the judge asked CBI counsel whether the case filed against Nimmagadda Prasad is part of the Jagan properties case. To this, counsel Kesava Rao said ‘this is different case.

The CBI counsel minced his words when the judge asked if the Government had suffered any loss after the Navayuga group joined as partner in the Vanpic project. There was no reply from the counsel when Justice Govindarajulu said any business partnership agreement would be subject to the main agreement entered into by the two governments and asked if there was any violation. 

Objecting to the bail for Nimmagadda Prasad, CBI counsel said they have issued notice to the representatives of RAC (Rasal Al Khaima) but there was no response from them. “If bail is given to Nimmagadda, he will influence the witnesses who are employees in the Vanpic,” said the counsel.

The counsel replied he had no readymade information when the judge wanted to know the number of employees listed as witnesses. Justice Govindarajulu also objected when the counsel went on repeating the same old story of quid pro quo allegations.
