The final hearing on the Jaggi murder case, began in Raipur on Tuesday in a local court. The defense lawyer Surendra Shukla was allowed to plead on Tuesday on behalf of Amit Jogi and other accused.

During the hearing, one of the main accused in this case, Amit Jogi, son of former chief minister Ajit Jogi himself was also present in the court. He was brought in the court amidst tight security from the Raipur Central Jail in the afternoon.

The defense lawyer argued that all the charges made against Amit and the other accused were not genuine and the statement given by Satish Jaggi, son of the deceased Ramavatar Jaggi could not be taken in the face value, the advocate further said in the court.

Meanwhile, former chief minister Ajit Jogi has been summoned by another court in connection with Jaggi murder case. It may be recalled that on the basis of an application moved by Satish Jaggi in the court of Mrs Satyabhama Ajay Dubey, the former chief minister had been arrested during the by-election in Rajnandgaon. Subsequently he had been granted bail also. In the wake of the ongoing session of Parliament, it was not yet certain as to whether Ajit Jogi would arrive in Raipur on Wednesday.

Last time also, he had submitted an application in a local court, seeking exemption from appearing in the court, citing the reason of the previous Parliament session.
