VISAKHAPATNAM: The YSRC leaders from Vizag, including party district president Gudivada Amarnath and Vamsi Krishna, on Tuesday filed a complaint with the CBI against IT minister Nara Lokesh and around 50 other influential persons over the alleged land grab in Daspalla Hills. 


However, it is learnt that the CBI, though accepted the complaint, asked them to get a directive from the High Court or Supreme Court directing them to initiate the probe, as the property in question reportedly belonged to the State government.


According to Amarnath, the case was filed for an 80-acre land beside the Circuit House in the Daspalla Hills, falling under survey numbers 1196, 1197, 1027 and 1028. “The registrations of these stretches were done in the name of some private persons at the behest of Lokesh. Then district collector N Yuvraj notified these lands as government lands, he said.


But now, with the help of around 52 benamies,  Lokesh had grabbed the lands. In return, the benamies offered about 2,000 square feet land for the TDP office in the same locality, alleged Amarnath and Vamsi Krishna, while speaking to the media here on Tuesday.


The YSR Cngress leaders said that they would also file a PIL in the Hyderabad High Court after June 1 or will ask the court to issue a directive to the central investigative agency tpo begin a probe.
