Chandrababu Naidu Granted Bail in Skill Development Scam Case

Chandrababu Naidu

Hyderabad, India – In a significant development, the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday granted bail to TDP chief and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in the multi-crore skill development scam case. Naidu was on conditional medical bail for four weeks prior to this ruling.

Naidu’s arrest on September 9, 2023, stemmed from allegations of irregularities amounting to ₹3,300 crore in the Andhra Pradesh Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) during his tenure as Chief Minister. The Andhra Pradesh Police’s Crime Investigation Department (CID) initiated a probe into the case in March 2023 following notices issued to former Indian Railway Traffic Service officer Arja Srikanth, who served as the APSSDC’s CEO in 2016. The investigation was based on statements provided by an accused-turned-approver and depositions made by three IAS officers.

The High Court’s granting of bail to Naidu comes as a major relief to the TDP chief and his supporters. While the investigation into the scam continues, Naidu’s release from custody is expected to have a significant impact on the political landscape of Andhra Pradesh.
