Anti-Corruption Bureau officials that conducted raids on the residence of Sub-Registrar of Madhurawada Ananda Kumar at Lawson’s Bay Colony today have found a 9 mm loaded pistol and 40 rounds. ACB sources said that the licence of the pistol was expired in October and was not renewed.

Ananda Kumar was trapped by ACB in a disproportionate assets case. The ACB officials have established the nexus between the accused official and two land grabbers P.Venkata Rao and Nanaji on whom rowdy sheets were opened by PM Palem police in the past. The ACB DSP K.Ramakrishna Prasad said that the accused had misused his position to convince the people to buy grabbed lands and to issue fake registration certificates. The total value of the immovable property of the accused is valued at Rs.4.5 crore while the market value would be over Rs.100 crore. The unidentified assets would be over anther Rs.50 crores, said sources.

The four storied building with high tech interior decoration itself costs over and a half core while the construction would be around Rs.1 crore. The ACB conducted raids on the residences of another two persons who have nexus with the tainted Registrar.

The accused who was absconding surrendered before the ACB on Wednesday night and was taken into custody.
