ACB to reopen Disproportionate Assets Case against Babu


Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is all set to face yet another case with the Telangana Anti-Corruption Bureau deciding to reopen a case filed in 2005 by his political and family bete noir Laxmi Parvathi.

It may be recalled Laxmi Parvathi had complained to the ACB that the Chandrababu Naidu earned his properties and assets through dubious means which are disproportionate to his original income source. A case to this effect was registered with ACB and notices were also issued to Chandrababu Naidu in this connection. Subsequently, it was shelved out after Babu secured the stay order from the Court on further investigations.

However, with the Supreme Court deciding to vacate the stay orders piled up in various cases in the county, the Telangana High Court too followed the suit. Subsequently, the ACB was asked to act up on which had summoned the complainant in the case Laxmi Parvathi for her consent whether to go ahead with the investigation into the case. 

Laxmi Parvathi who arrived in ACB’s office today, reportedly expressed her willingness to proceed with the case further against Babu but she would give her consent in writing only after consulting her lawyers in the case.
