Cases booked against Kodela under Sections 409 and 411

Andhra Pradesh police have booked a case against former AP Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao for allegedly sending Assembly furniture to his house.

Police registered the case against Mr. Siva Prasada Rao and his son Sivaramakrishna under IPC Sections 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant) and 411 (dishonestly receiving stolen property) based on a complaint by Assembly section officer Eshwar Rao. 

Officials complained to the police after they confirmed that Assembly material was being used for personal purposes. They also identified that the Assembly furniture has been utilised at his house and two-wheeler showroom.

The issue came to light after the senior Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader's 'confession' came out after it was reported that some items, including furniture and computers, had gone missing when the assets of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were bifurcated.

Kodela had justified the move by saying, "If we would have left the furniture at the Speaker's chamber in Hyderabad, maintenance may have been a problem. They may not even have been secure. Due to this, I shifted the furniture to my camp office in Sattenapalli."
