CID gives clean chit to Andhra minister Pulla Rao’s wife in AgriGold case
VIJAYAWADA: The Crime Investigation Department (CID) which has been probing into Rs 6,000 crore AgriGold scam, has given a clean chit to Agriculture Minister Prathipati Pulla Rao’s wife by announcing that the lands purchased by her did not belong to AgriGold company.
CID chief and Additional DG Ch Dwaraka Tirumala Rao on Saturday said that the CID has probed into the allegations against Pulla Rao’s wife that the lands she purchased were benami lands of AgriGold and found that it was baseless. The CID chief also announced that the allegations against YSRC leader Gowtham Reddy that he had purchased AgriGold lands were also unfounded. The lands bought by Gowtham Reddy did not belong to AgriGold, he said.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Saturday, Home minister Chinarajappa, who was also present at the press conference, said that that the TDP government was very keen to ensure repayment of money to victims of AgriGold. The AgriGold scam was a very sensational one and over Rs 6,000 crore money was collected by the company from depositors leaving them high and dry. Though the irregularities surfaced during the previous Congress regime, the first case was registered after the TDP came into power. Already seven key persons of the company including chairman and managing director AV Rama Rao have been arrested and 12 more persons are yet to be arrested. The government has announced Rs 10 lakh reward to whoever gives information that could lead to the arrest of 12 more persons, the Home minister said.
