The CID authorities asked Naidu to appear before the CID officer whenever he is called to depose in the case.
The Amaravati Land Scam involves the aggregation of thousands of acres of land for the proposed capital of the divided state of Andhra Pradesh. As per CID investigations, Naidu’s close aides had purchased approximately 500 acres of assigned land after the announcement of the capital city.
An FIR was registered by the CID under 120b, 166,167, and 217 in the Amaravati land scam case. This is over the irregularities alleged in the acquisition of lands in Amaravati and illegal land transfers.
However, the TDP has denied any wrongdoing by the former chief minister. They have accused the previous Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy government for favouritism.
The former CM has been asked to appear in person on March 23, at 11 a.m., at the Regional CID office in Satyanarayanapuram in Vijayawada.
