The CBI court on September 25 had taken cognisance of the sixth chargesheet filed by the probe agency against Jagan, Srinivasan and others on September 10, and issued summons, asking all the accused to appear on November 1.

Accordingly, all of them appeared in the court, which then fixed December 3 for next hearing.

The sixth chargesheet relates to India Cements making alleged quid pro quo investments to the tune of Rs. 140 crore into Jagan-owned companies, and consequent "undue" benefits received by the firm in allocation of land and water from rivers Krishna and Kagna from the then Andhra Pradesh government led by YS Rajasekhara Reddy, Jagan's father.

Jagan and his financial advisor Vijay Sai Reddy figured as the first two accused in the chargesheet, while the others include Srinivasan, IAS officers M Samuel and Aditya Nath Das, Jagati Publications and Carmel Asia.

"We have not done anything wrong...it will be proved (in court). Beyond that I have nothing to say," Srinivasan told the waiting journalists as he emerged out of the court.

CBI has so far filed 10 chargesheets, which have names of former state Ministers, bureaucrats, corporate entities and businessmen besides Jagan and his associates.

Jagan, the prime accused in the case, was granted bail on September 23 after being in jail for over a year.

The case relates to investments made by various companies in Jagan's firms as quid quo pro for alleged favours bestowed on them during the tenure of Rajasekhara Reddy, who was chief minister between 2004 and 2009.
