Senior hero Akkineni Nagarjuna came to Chanchalguda Central Prison on Saturday to meet his business partner Nimmagadda Prasad who was arrested by the CBI in connection with the Jagan illegal assets case.
After the mulaqat Nag spoke with the mediapersons waiting outside the jail for a brief time. The actor said that Nimmagadda Prasad is his good friend and they used to meet daily till before he was put behind the bars. Nag made it clear that he just came to meet Nimmagadda, as he hadn’t seen him in the recent past due to the arrest which is very unfortunate.
When the media questioned him whether he met Jagan in the jail, Nag replied nothing of that sort happened.
CBI named Nimmagadda Prasad as the 12th accused in the charge sheet of Jagan’s illegal assets case. He invested nearly Rs. 800 crores in Jagan companies as part of the quid pro quo deal. In return, he received around 15 thousand acres for his Vanpic project from the YSR government. Cases were booked against Prasad under sections 120B, IPC 420, 409 and 477A of PC act.
