Hyderabad, Feb 3 — The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Sunday demanded a CBI probe into the assets of Anil Kumar, son-in-law of late Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

The party has alleged that the evangelist amassed huge assets by floating 11 companies when Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister from 2004 to 2009.

BJP spokesman N.V.S.S. Prabhakar told reporters that Anil Kumar also invested hundreds of crores in other companies and committed irregularities.

He sought a probe into the assets of both Anil Kumar and his wife Sharmila. "People should know how a religious preacher amassed such huge wealth," he said.

Rajasekhara Reddy, popularly known as YSR, died in a helicopter crash Sep 2, 2009.

Targetting the late YSR's family for the first time, the BJP leader said Anil Kumar was not an evangelist but a businessman.

Prabhakar gave details of the companies in which Anil Kumar is a director.

Sharmila, a leader of the YSR Congress party, was injured during a padyatra last month.

Sharmila's brother and YSR Congress party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy is in jail in an alleged illegal assets case.
