    The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and Vigilance & Enforcement department in Hyderabad are cracking down on officials involved in the sheep scam. Two important officials have been questioned by the ACB, with more expected to be taken into custody for questioning.

    The ACB recently took joint director Anjilappa and assistant director P Krishnaiah into custody for their alleged links to contractor Moinuddin, who failed to deposit money in the bank accounts of sheep farmers. The officials are also being questioned about the diversion of over Rs 2 crore related to the scheme and the wealth acquired by officials.
