Government inquiry indicts Revanth Reddy, his relative for land grab

Hyderabad: Trouble is mounting for TPCC Working President Anumula Revanth Reddy after government inquiry revealed that Malkajgiri MP and his friend Kondal Reddy mutated prized land using forged documents in the Ranga Reddy district.

An investigation conducted by the district collector has revealed that Revanth Reddy had allegedly grabbed 6.7 acres of land bearing survey number 127 at Gopanapally in Serilingampally Mandal of Rangareddy district.

The dispute dates back to 2017 when a local resident Kolla Aruna filed a writ petition in the High Court praying to restrain Revanth Reddy from selling the land since he was its legal owner of

The government later ordered an inquiry to unearth the truth. Ranga Reddy district collector, who was probing the matter, submitted the report to the Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar.

Acting on the report, Kumar suspended former Tahsildar/Deputy collector who committed forgery and illegally mutated the land.

According to reports, 10.21 acres of land was belonging to V Hanuma until 1977. From 1978, V Mallayya was shown its owner. It was in 1994 when land records showed that Dabba Mallayya was its owner. But the claim was not backed by any evidence. From 2001-02, his name was removed and a new name “I. Mallayya " was entered into the record books.

Later in 2005, the then deputy collector/Tehsildar changed the mutation of 2 acres and 21 yards of land and declared I Lakshamayya as the successor of Mallayya. It was concluded that this land belonged to Lakshamayya.

Tehsildar later did an about-turn saying Lakshamayya only owned 31.5 yards of land. Further inquiry revealed that the Tehsildar violated the rules and changed the mutation.
