The CID is looking into allegations of irregularities in a land deal in Amaravati, the state capital. Former CRDA commissioner Cherukuri Sridhar was questioned in the case by CID officials, who provided an explanation to authorities regarding the disappearance of revenue records.
During the CID investigation, he appears to have revealed key facts. According to Sridhar, the Tulluru mandal records were leaked in secret in October 2014, just before the land pooling in 2015.
According to Sridhar, GO 41 was used to acquire assigned lands, and all of this was overseen by former minister Narayana. Sridhar stated that he had brought to the attention of former minister Narayana the issues that were in violation of the AP Assigned Land Act 1977. According to the CID, the investigation reveals that the land deal was carried out on Narayana's orders.
Sridhar revealed that as a minister, Narayana told him that decisions would only be implemented by ministers and other government officials. With this, the CID filed a counter-file in the High Court, asking for permission to proceed with his trial.
Based on preliminary reports on insider trading allegations, an in-depth investigation is underway. The capital issue is known ahead of time and is being investigated in terms of who purchased the lands.
Some celebrities were accused of purchasing land prior to the announcement of the capital. A list of leaders involved in the Amaravati land irregularities was also submitted by the Cabinet subcommittee.
