This historical construction has no importance until a bada scamster kept his leg inside it. Popular celebrity jail of Hyderabad Chanchalguda central prison is now Housefull.
Constructed during Nizam period, Chanchalguda central prison is not known to many until mining mafia king Gali Janardhan Reddy became its inmate. With authorities constructing special provisions for VIPs there, white collared culprits started a liking for this place. Gali is followed by Raj Gopal IAS, Emmar Sunil Reddy, BP Acharya IAS, Koneru Prasad, Nimmagadda, Brahmananda Reddy, YS Jagan and Mopidevi. This jail currently holds 9 VIP barracks and all are currently filled with the arrival of ex-minister Mopidevi Venkataramana today. So, for now this Celebrity Jail is shutting down temporarily with no more space for VIPs.
However, if Court orders, VIPs will be stuffed up to 3 members per room. Even then, jail authorities might end up putting an ‘houseful’ board soon with CBI getting ready to grill some more VIPs Jagan’s illegal assets case.
