As per reports the Telugu Academy has deposited Rs 330 crore in 34 accounts in 11 banks. Officials said the deposits were mainly in Union Bank and Canara Bank. The Telugu Academy had earlier complained about the role of bank officials in the missing funds, however, bank representatives told police that the deposits were closed after seeing the proper documents.
