Hyderabad:: Jagan moves to High Court:: Jagan Reddy had filed a petition in the Hyderabad High Court seeking a direction to assign the investigation into the attempt on his life to an independent agency. The petition is likely to come up for hearing on Thursday. He said in the petition that the investigating agency he had sought should not come under the control of AP State or its police chief. Already, a writ petition by his party political affairs committee member and another PIL by two others were filed with near similar content on the matter. In a fresh writ petition, he made Chandrababu Naidu as one of the respondents along with the State Home Secretary and the DGP. He said that he lost trust in the State led by Chandrababu and its police machinery and hence sought probe by an independent agency to unravel truth behind the attack.
