Zero FIR Filed Against ABN Andhra Jyothi MD V Radhakrishna - Sakshi Post

VIJAYAWADA: Andhra Pradesh-CID officials filed a ‘zero FIR’ against ABN-Andhrajyothi managing director Vemuri Radhakrishna for obstructing them from discharging their duties on Saturday.

The sleuths stated that the ABN-Andhra Jyothi MD and three others obstructed them from conducting raids on retired IAS officer K. Lakshmi Narayana’s house in Hyderabad as part of the probe into the Rs 241-crore scam unearthed in the AP Skill Development Corporation. Radhakrishna reached the residence of the then APSDC Director K Lakshmi Narayana, the accused in the case while CID officials were conducting searches.

He and his followers chanted slogans against the CID outside. He did not listen to CID officials who told him to stop videotaping the CID search operation and to control his followers outside. With that, the CID officials had to complete the Panchanama amidst intense pressure. CID officials immediately returned to Vijayawada as the contents of the Panchanama had to be submitted to the court soon.

The FIR was filed following a complaint from the CID circle inspector at CID headquarters police station in Amaravati. The FIR copy was sent to the magistrate court in Guntur and it would be sent to the Jubilee Hills police station in Telangana later.

A case was registered against him under Sections 353, 341, 186, 120 (b) under Zero FIR on Sunday. The case will be transferred to Telangana for further hearing.

Meanwhile, CID officials on Sunday arrested three representatives of private companies who were involved in the scam. CID officials arrested Vikas Khanwilkar, managing director, Design Tech Company, Pune, Mukesh Agarwal, managing director, Schiller, Delhi, and Suman Bose, former MD, Siemens, based in Noida. They were brought to Vijayawada after obtaining a transit warrant from the courts there. The trio appeared in the ACB court in Vijayawada and were remanded till May 24 by a judge.
