Highly reliable sources reveal that the National Investigation Authority (NIA), which looks into suspicious business activities with traders abroad and studies activities inimical to India, has now focused on two MLAs from Nizamabad district. If sources are to be believed, the NIA is conducting raids on Saturday and Sunday on the properties and investments of these two MLAs.
As of now, the names of these two MLAs are being kept a secret. However, it is learnt that the NIA has conducted raids on the friends and business associates of these leaders in both Hyderabad and Nizamabad district. Inquiry is also being made into their overseas businesses, especially those with the businessmen in the Gulf region.
Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate too is conducting raids on various business establishments. Sources say that notices were issued to 18 persons belonging to 12 companies involved in the Delhi liquor scam. There were rumours that MLC Kavitha Kalwakuntla too was served notices. However, Kavitha has refuted the rumours and issued a clarification through Twitter.
In addition to the ED raids, the NIA investigations have created quite a sensation in Nizamabad. This is the hot topic of discussion among the political leaders in the district. Sources say that 20 GST and police staff members, including four Superintendents of police have been loaned to the NIA. Further details are awaited.
