HYDERABAD: The special investigation team constituted by the Andhra Pradesh government to look into the alleged Amaravati land scam has said that former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu misused his powers to predetermine the location of the new capital. As per the investigation, this helped his family members.
Citing the findings of the cabinet sub-committee, the SIT report said: “It has been established beyond a reasonable doubt that persons at the helm of the affairs in the erstwhile government of AP like the then CM Chandrababu Naidu have committed several offences like criminal breach of trust, misuse of public office and conspiracy.” The cabinet sub-committee, in its findings, said the boundaries of the capital area were manipulated in such a way that land held by persons at the helm of affairs and their families was right adjacent to the capital area and not in the land pooling area for the capital.
Both the cabinet sub-committee and SIT alleged that Naidu had indulged in insider trading as well.
