VISAKHAPATNAM:  The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths raided Pudimadaka Marine Police station inspector Sheikh Hussain and arrested him, Wednesday, for having assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. The raids are being conducted at  16 places, including Visakhapatnam district, Vizianagaram, Rajam and  Benguluru.

According to sources, the ACB officials led by Visakhapatnam ACB DSP A Ramakrishna Prasad reportedly seized a number of movable and immovable properties of the inspector, whose market value is estimated to be about Rs 15 crore as per initial assessment. Sources said that the documents seized include those of fully-furnished three-storey house at Chepalauppada near Thimmapuram area, a site of about 470 sq yds at Sheelanagar and another 270 sq yds at Yendada in Visakhapatnam city limits. Besides, a house in Muslim Colony at Pendurthi and a few others were unearthed. A locker in the name of his daughter was found in Benguluru. ACB sources said that a real estate company in the name of his son and daughter, is also being probed. The real estate company had constructed several duplex houses at Suryanagar in Pendurthi, and officials are suspecting that the land was procured by the accused himself.

Inspector Sheikh Hussain worked at several police stations in Visakhapatnam city and rural limits. The police also said that there were allegations of his involvement in white collar crimes like SIMS. The accused will be produced before the Special Judge ACB on Thursday.
