It has come out on the day of Gandhi Jayanti 2020 that former Assistant Commissioner of Police, of Malkajgiri Sub-Division, Y Narasimha Reddy is not only crooked but also a land grabber following the arrest of eight persons by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).
It may be recalled the ACB last month arrested the ACP on charges of amassing wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income and sent him to prison. ACB carried out simultaneous searches and discovered assets worth over Rs. 75 crore amassed by the corrupt police officer.
The ACB also succeeded in securing an order from the designated court to take the corrupt police officer into custody for further investigation. Even before the police custody began, ACB got another breakthrough when it arrested eight persons in connection with four plots purchased in different names by Narasimha Reddy.
According to an official release, the eight persons along with ACP Narasimha Reddy colluded with each other to grab high value government land through fraudulent deal.
The corrupt ACP tried to grab the land situated in prime locality in front of Cyber Towers in Madhapur worth over Rs 50 crore by getting executed sale deeds showing that he had purchased the land for Rs 80 lakh.
However, ACB uncovered the fraudulent deal and arrested G Sajjan Goud, G Raja Lingam, P Tirupathi Reddy and Y Chandrasekhar, who executed sale deeds in favour of Narasimha Reddy’s wife Y Manga, Madhukar Sri Ram, Bandi Chandra Reddy, Bathini Ramesh and A Srinivas Reddy.
The ACB sleuths also arrested Madhukar, Chandra Reddy, Ramesh and Srinivas Reddy. However, the ACB release is silent on the arrest of Y Manga.
ACB release also said that Narasimha Reddy got the land undervalued for Rs 4 crore, while the government value itself was Rs 6 crore when the fraudulent sale deeds were executed in 2018, whereas the market value was more than Rs. 50 crore at that point of time.
Thus, the crooked ACP almost grabbed government land worth over Rs 50 crore for just Rs 80 lakh in collusion with the eight accused arrested on October 2, which means he resorted to land grabbing abusing his official position as a police officer. But what is surprising is that the ACB did not choose to arrest the corrupt police officer’s wife Manga though one plot was registered on her name, whereas the investigating agency has arrested four others after discovering that the plots were registered on their names.
