New twist in AP CMRF cheques forgery scam
The ACB launched a probe into the misuse of the Chief Minister's Relief Fund (CMRF) cheques issued to the beneficiaries. A person by name Bhaskar Reddy belonging to the Kadapa district came before the TV9 media and confessed that he withdrew Rs 9.95 lakh from the SBI branches in Proddatur with three CMRF forged cheques.
He revealed that his friend Subbarami Reddy of Hosur in Tamil Nadu state had altered the amount on the CMRF cheques and gave them to him. The reason for voluntarily confessing to the crime was that Bhaskar Reddy has suspected that the ACB might make him key accused in the multi-crore scam.
