Jagan’s follower Jupudi and another migrant from Congress, Sabbam Hari has confirmed the news to the press before condemning the acts of CBI.
‘CBI has taken Jagan into custody 20 minutes back. They have asked us to call lawyers and family members to arrest Jagan. None of us are allowed to go inside. CBI will inform all other formalities to media later, as it is not legal for me to speak. I advise all the cadres and loyalists of Jagan across the state to stay calm, as ordered by Jagan to me’, said Sabbam Hari.
Sources inside the CBI also confirmed the report, but CBI JD Lakshmi Narayana is expected to talk with the media regarding arrest later in the night. According to reports, Jagan will be produced before magistrate tonight.
