The CBI court in Hyderabad has issued summons to Y S Jaganmohan Reddy to appear before it on May 28 in the disproportionate assets case. Twleve others, including IAS officer B P Acharya also have been issued summons.
This came on the same day as the CBI filed the third chargesheet in the same case and today it named Ramky group chairman Ayodhya Rami Reddy as accused number 4 in the case and Ramky Pharma as accused no. 6.
