Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday served notice by the state Crime Investigation Department (CID) to join the probe in the Amaravati land scam case which the Telugu Desam Party called the ''most frivolous FIR'' filed by a ruling YSRC MLA.
A team of the investigation agency on Tuesday reached Chandrababu Naidu's Hyderabad residence and served him notice to join the probe.
An FIR was registered by the CID under 120b, 166,167, and 217 in the Amaravati land scam case over the irregularities alleged in the acquisition of lands in Amaravati and illegal land transfers. Chandrababu Naidu has been asked to attend the investigation on March 23.
Referring to the MLAs complaint, the FIR said, ''some of the farmers of his constituency represented him that some influenced persons of the then government have cheated them by taking away their lands illegally, fraudulently by keeping innocent peasants under confusion and fear of insecurity about their lands.
The alleged scam involves the aggregation of thousands of acres of land for the proposed capital of the divided state of Andhra Pradesh.
