YSR Congress chief and Kadapa MP Jagan Mohan Reddy is in more trouble in the alleged disproportionate assets case with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which was denied his custody, likely to move a higher court while the Enforcement Directorate, too, may question him.

Jagan spent his first night in Hyderabad's Chanchalguda jail on Monday after a court sent him to 14-day judicial custody, which means he won't be able to campaign for the crucial by-polls for one Lok Sabha and 18 Assembly seats scheduled to take place on June 12.

Jagan's mother Vijayamma has written to the Chief Election Commissioner asking him to let Jagan campaign. Jagan's mother in her letter to the EC said, "The CBI has arrested Jagan Reddy most undemocratically just 15 days before the by-elections as part of a larger conspiracy. It is no secret that the YSR Congress has gained an unprecedented ground in the state, the losers being the Congress and the TDP. Both of them have phenomenal clout and are misusing every institution with impunity. I request you to kindly direct the CBI to immediate release Jagan.'

Jagan, arrested in a disproportionate assets case, will stay in jail till the eve of the crucial by-polls in the state. He has been remanded to judicial custody for two weeks by a CBI court.

As the YSR Congress launched a high-pitched attack, the state Congress government rejected the charges saying his arrest was part of the legal process.

The drama continued in Hyderabad on Monday as Jagan was produced in front of the CBI court, and outside his residence, his family led by his mother YS Vijayamma went on a dharna.

Jagan's family protested and shouted slogans, designed to ensure that Jagan and his YSR Congress got maximum political mileage from the arrest.

In the courts, there was a semblance of victory. The CBI was refused further custody of Jagan despite making a strong argument that he hasn't cooperated and needs to be questioned further. Jagan will remain in judicial custody till June 11.
