The petition filed by Jagan’s lawyers is likely to come up for hearing on Saturday or Monday.
It may be recalled that CBI had filed the fifth charge-sheet against Jagan four days ago. The agency named Sabita Indra Reddy as the fourth accused in the case.
Jagan was arrested on May 27. Though he tried for bail at several levels, he did not succeed. Last year when his bail plea came up before the Supreme Court, the supreme court while directing the CBI to complete its investigation by March 2013, told Jagan he could apply for bail then.
In this context, Jagan filed the fresh petition, on the plea that the CBI had not completed the investigation as directed. However, CBI is maintaining that no deadline was set for it to complete the investigation.
