CBI joint director V.V. Lakshminarayana on Wednesday accused a close relative of senior politician K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao and the YSR Congress of threatening him while he was handling sensitive cases including Kadapa MP Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s illegal investments case.
In his complaint to the Central Crime Station on Tuesday, details of which were available on Wednesday, Mr Lakshminarayana stated that his cellphone call list was revealed by the YSR Congress on June 21 with mala fide intentions. He also said that the articles published in Sakshi newspaper and the news items telecast on Sakshi TV for hours together using his photograph were disgraceful and had harmed his image.
In the three-page complaint, Mr Lakshminarayana said he had been handling very sensitive cases like the Obulapuram mining case, the Emaar scam and Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy’s illegal investments case and added that since the arrest of the YSR Congress chief on May 27 by the CBI, Sakshi had gone on an overdrive to defame him and the agency.
