ACB resumes quizzing Dhulipala Narendra

Vijayawada: With former MLA Dhulipala Narendra recovered from COVID-19, Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths resumed their interrogation of him in the Sangam Dairy case at Armed Reserve Grounds in the city on Monday morning.
Officials had issued notice to Narendra on Sunday seeking him to attend the interrogation with the investigating officer. Narendra along with his advocate Gottipatti Ramakrishna Prasad reached the premises around 9 am. However, Ramakrishna was not allowed to attend the interrogation session with Narendra.
On his request, the ACB did record the entire interrogation session on video for two hours. Addressing the media after the interrogation, Prasad informed that there are post-COVID weaknesses to Sangam Dairy chairman Narendra and had requested ACB to ensure the meeting takes place sooner. Sources said that ACB have presented the evidence gathered on various irregularities including forgery, illegal transfer of lands belonging to Sangam Dairy worth over Rs 700 crore in the open market, etc.
They then recorded the statement related to the same. ACB officials have sought Narendra’s presence on Tuesday as well. The anti-graft officials primarily allege that the accused is involved in committing the crime in 2013 after converting the dairy, which was under Cooperative Society sector, into a firm under the Companies Act by forging signatures of government officials. While ACB sought to interrogate Narendra at Rajahmundry Jail, the entire session was postponed after he tested positive for Covid-19.
