Andhra CM caught in land scam

BANGALORE: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy seems to be caught up in a shady land deal in Bangalore. He has registered against his name land of 4 acres and 26 guntas in Survey No 47 at Kodigehalli village in Krishnarajapuram hobli, which was allotted to a Schedule Caste family in 1983.

Though there is no bar on purchasing such land, there is a stipulated period of 15 years only after which it can be sold. But this piece of land was first bought by one HT Narayana Reddy in 1991, well ahead of the stipulated time.

Then, in a possible case of a benami transaction, the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister paid an advance on Rs 13.2 lakh to one Vijayalakshmi in three instalments (Rs 4 lakh cheque no. 482530 Rs 3,60,000 cheque no. 482530 Rs 1,60,000 cheque no. 482531 Rs 4 lakh cheque no. 482530 drawn on Canara Bank, Lavelle Road, Bangalore) on September 25, 1995 towards the purchase of the land though she herself had not bought the land.
