New Delhi, March 1 (IANS) A court here has granted Raghav Magunta, son of YSRCP MP from Andhra Pradesh’s Ongole, Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, permission to become an approver in the CBI’s case related to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy matter.

Special Judge M.K. Nagpal of Rouse Avenue Court issued the order allowing Raghav’s application seeking court’s approval to turn approver and receive a pardon in the case.

Raghav, who recently got anticipatory bail from the court, was not specifically named as an accused in the FIR related to the case. Moreover, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) confirmed that Raghav cooperated with the probe, providing vital information during his questioning.

The court, noting the absence of evidence suggesting Raghav’s influence on any witnesses, granted him anticipatory bail. Recently, Raghav also became the approver in the money laundering case associated with the Delhi excise policy, under investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Previously, Delhi-based businessman Dinesh Arora had been declared an approver in the CBI’s investigation of the excise policy case.
