Policewomen forcibly lifted Jagan’s mother Vijayamma, wife Bharathi, sister Sharmila, and other family members into the waiting police vehicles after they sat on a “dharna” on the road in front of Dilkusha Guest House, the camp office of CBI. They were later dropped at their residence.
Police also arrested Jagan’s brother-in-law Anil Kumar, Congress MP Sabbam Hari, who is loyal to Jagan, YSR party leaders J. Prabhakar Rao, Y.V. Subba Reddy and others.
Police said they were all arrested for violating prohibitory orders, which are in force in the city. The orders ban assembly of five or more people.
Vijayamma, widow of late Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy and family members staged sit-in for over two hours demanding the CBI officials come out and give them the reason for Jagan’s arrest.
They earlier called on Jagan in the guest house. Vijayamma blamed Congress president Sonia Gandhi for her son’s arrest.
