In the wake of uproar over the sensational “Call Money” scam, the Andhra Pradesh government has decided to order an inquiry into the entire gamut by a retired judge of the High Court.

After the cabinet meeting here on Wednesday, Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu told the media that a retired judge of the High Court would inquire into this scam. Yanamala also said a Private Universities Bill would be moved in the winter session of the Assembly beginning from Thursday. The cabinet also decided to bring a Money Laundering Bill, he said.

Meanwhile,  Vijayawada Police Commissioner Gautham Sawang, who had taken leave after the “Call Money” racket surfaced, has cancelled his leave due to the intensity and seriousness of the scam allegedly involving  leaders of various political partiers. The Police Commissioner has cancelled his 10-day leave from tomorrow that was sanctioned on the basis of his request last month.

Sawang said he has written a letter to the DGP urging him to cancel his leave. As the Vijayawada Police chief was transferred, the Opposition parties alleged that the officer was transferred in order to protect TDP leaders allegedly involved in the scam.

Speaking to the media at Vijayawada, Gautham Sawang said so far 75 persons were arrested in “Call Money” scam case and subjected to questioning. Stern action would be taken against those who threatened the victims, he added.
