CBI questions Geetha Reddy - Sakshi Post

The CBI on Tuesday night questioned Major Industries Minister J. Geetha Reddy about the allotment of land to Lepakshi Knowledge Hub (LKH)

The senior cabinet minister was questioned for two hours at her residence by a team of officials from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), sources said Wednesday.
Geetha Reddy was quizzed about the allotment of land to Lepakshi Knowledge Hub in Anantapur district.

Geetha Reddy is the fifth minister questioned by the CBI in connection with different aspects of the case.

Three of them have so far been named by the CBI in the chargesheets. One of them Mopidevi Venkatramna is in jail for more than a year.

Sabitha Indra Reddy and Dharmana Prasada Rao resigned as home and roads and buildings ministers respectively in May after the CBI named them as accused.
The CBI questioned them once again last week. Dharmana was grilled about the allotment of land to Lepakshi Knowledge Hub (LKH) as he was holding the revenue portfolio in Rajasekhara Reddy's cabinet.

LKH had signed an MoU with the industries department in February 2009 for setting up a global knowledge hub by providing integrated infrastructure support to a range of activities, including education clusters, science and technology parks, medical, aviation and aerospace and IT parks.

In October last year, the government asked the industries department to initiate measures to cancel the land allotment
