Hyderabad: Justice G Sridevi of the Telangana High Court on Thursday granted more time to the CBI to file its counter in the case related to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy. The AP Chief Minister had filed a petition urging the court to exempt his presence in the disproportionate assets cases registered against him by the agency. He challenged the order of the Special CBI Court, which rejected his plea for exemption of appearance before it. Conceding to the request of CBI counsel K Surender for time to file counter, the judge adjourned the case by four weeks.
