Visakhapatnam: The Special Investigation Team probing into the tampering of land documents took a new twist on Monday with the Anakapalle MLA Peela Govind Satyanarayana lodging a complaint against Revenue Divisional Officer S Venkateswarulu with the Collector Pravin Kumar.

A case has been registered in Anandapuram police station after the MLA being probed by the SIT. “The RDO’s partisan attitude has brought down my family image,’’ Govind told reporters.

The MLA said he showed all the documents beginning from 1981 and met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and explained him in detail how his father purchased the land in phases from 1995 to 2005. After the Chief Minister was convinced, he then submitted a petition to the Collector against the RDO He said 105 acres of land in Ramavaram village of Anandapuram mandal was once owned by Pakalapati Appalaraju.

After his death, his two sons Bairagi Raju and Padmanabha Raju inherited the property. They too died and their six children divided the property among themselves.

Their ownership is recorded in all the revenue records and though some people raised disputes, the ownership remained in their name. Even passbooks were issued to them.

“My father purchased 69.95 acres of land after carefully examining all the records. He also got all the passbooks in his name in phases,’’ the MLA said.

He said the RDO cancelled passbooks of 95 acres but did not touch 10 acres of land. A prominent TDP leader claimed ownership and RDO issued him conversion certificate. Even VUDA approved layout in that land which later changed hands.
