The FIR was filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and also the SCs and STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. CID investigating officer asked Naidu to appear in person at the CID regional office in Vijayawada. The FIR was registered by CID on March 12, based on a complaint filed by YSRC MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy on February 24, over a month after the High Court struck down a case pertaining to "insider trading" in the Amaravati land scam, naming Naidu and former minister P Narayana as accused." The issue pertains to pooling of land for the development of the state's new capital city Amaravati back in 2015.
