Hyderabad: A team of state Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Friday carried out searches at Exhibition society’s office located in Nampally.
According to the sources, amid certain allegations of misappropriation of society funds, the ACB swung into action and carried out searches at the society’s office in the city.
A team under the supervision of Deputy Superintendent of Police (ACB) city range Srikanth reached the society and started checking the accounts and other documents too.
The crackdown by the ACB on the exhibition society holds relevance since its former president Eatala Rajender, who was also the former health minister was removed by the Chief Minister Telangana K Chandrasekhar Rao recently.
“At this juncture we cannot reveal details about the ongoing search at the Exhibition society office, once the operation ends an official statement will be released” said a senior ACB official.
Every year Exhibition society organises All India Industrial Exhibition (Numaish) but due to pandemic, the event 2021 was cancelled.
