CBI books ex-ED official who probed Jagan case!

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday registered a case of disproportionate assets against Bollineni Sreenivasa Gandhi, superintendent of GST Anti-Evasion wing, following simultaneous raids on his residence and properties in Hyderabad and Vijayawada.

According to reliable sources, the CBI had found disproportionate assets worth Rs 3.75 crore in the searches in the afternoon.

However, it is learnt Gandhi had amassed assets worth over Rs 500 crore. He is also expecting promotion this month.

Ironically, this “gentleman” had worked as assistant director in the Enforcement Directorate and investigated the disproportionate assets case of YSR Congress Party president and present Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.

He had reportedly attached several properties of Jagan during the ED probe.

In February 2018, Jagan lodged complaint with Prime Minister Narendra Modi against Gandhi stating that the official was acting in a vindictive manner at the behest of Telugu Desam Party president and then chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

Needless to say Gandhi belonged to the same community of Naidu.

He was also charged with helping former TDP MP Y S Chowdary of Sujana group of companies by diluting the tax evasion cases.

After his term in the Enforcement Directorate, Gandhi was transferred to the GST department and posted in the Anti-Evasion wing at GST commissioner’s office in Hyderabad.
