The Enforcement Directorate has been given permission to interrogate YSR Congress chief Jagan Reddy in the case in which he is accused of acquiring financial assets well above his known sources of income.
The investigating agency had filed an application before a CBI court to interrogate Reddy who is presently in judicial custody till 18 July.
The CBI had filed a case of possessing disproportionate financial assets against Reddy and said that companies had invested in companies owned by him in return for government facilities while his father was the Chief Minister.
ED officials had earlier interrogated three other accused in the case, including suspended IAS officer BP Acharya, industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad and senior bureaucrat KV Brahmananda Reddy at Chanchalguda prison and recorded their statements under Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
