ACB has registered a FIR against the Yelamanchili MLA Uppalapati Venkata Ramana Raju, alias Kanna Babu of Congress in the disproportionate assets case. The MLA, his wife, daughter and son are alleged to have acquired disproportionate assets.
ACB DSP Venkateswara Rao has registered cases against Kanna Babu and the rest of his family members. As the ACB court has directed the agency to file cases against them, cases were registered. The ACB court would hold further hearing of the case on October 11. ACB has recently filed cases against the MLA for misusing government funds meant for the poor people and amassing huge wealth using his power. He was also in news for allegedly threatening to kill a realtor in Visakhapatnam for not selling a 40-acre farm land to him.
