Visakhapatnam: TDP MLA Peela Govind and 11 others were booked on Friday in connection with the sensational Vizag land scam. The Anakapalle MLA was booked after Tehsildar Easwar Rao lodged a complaint against them after receiving the details from the SIT on his alleged involvement in the land grab.
As per reports, Govind and the other members have grabbed 95.89 acres of government land by tampering the land records in the revenue department. The complaint comes close on the heels after two women filed a case on Govind and his aides.
