The Andhra Pradesh Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has filed two petitions before the High Court. They are requesting to reopen the quash petitions hearing and consider new evidence provided by the sister-in-law of former minister P Narayana.
The case involves assigned land and was registered on March 12, 2021, based on a report by Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, MLA of Mangalagiri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu, the former Chief Minister, and P Narayana, the former Minister, were named as the main accused.
On March 19, 2021, the High Court granted a stay on the investigation and recently completed the hearing on the quash petition filed by the accused.
While the Criminal petition was reserved for orders, CID officers received new evidence from Ponguru Krishnapriya, Narayana’s sister-in-law. She provided a voluntary audiovisual statement with specific details on how Narayana engaged in the illegal purchase of assigned lands.
The Criminal petitions 1762 and 1764 of 2021 are listed in the cause list of the High Court and will be addressed on Monday before Justice V Krupasagar.
