Hyderabad: Fraud case has been registered against TDP MLC Vakati Narayana Reddy.
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) conducted simultaneous raids at his properties in Hyderabad, Nellore and Bangalore on Friday. The complaint was lodged against him by Industrial Finance Corporation of India (IFCI).
As reported by the Times of India, IFCI representatives stated in the complaint that VNR Infrastructures Ltd (VIL) had applied for loans for the purpose of executing Rs 190 crore worth projects in 2014-2015 financial year by placing the documents of certain immovable properties as security.
