An attender in the transport department of Andhra Pradesh who had been rejecting promotion after promotion to continue in the Nellore office has amassed wealth worth Rs 100 crore, including 2 kg gold and 7 kg silver.

The Central Investigation Unit of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) took more than a day's time to document the wealth accumulated by 55-year-old Karadu Narasimha Reddy. The ACB conducted simultaneous raids at six places belonging to the attender.

Reddy has been booked for possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Speaking to the media, ACB Deputy Superintendent Rama Devi said that Reddy owned 12 residential plots and over 50 acres of agriculture land registered under his name, his wife and mother-in-law. Reddy lives in a duplex house.

The ACB, which acted on a tip-off, found documents of 50.36 acres of land, 18 residential plots, insurance deposits and an unknown amount of deposits in banks.

Reddy joined the transportation department on October 22, 1984, and is due to retire in 2023. The department will place Reddy under suspension after the ACB formally arrests him.

Sources in the department said that Reddy was so rich and famous that he used to finance candidates contesting for Assembly elections from the local constituency.
