It all started when a complaint was filed on March 2 by data analyst T Lokeshwar Reddy against IT Grids India based in Hyderabad. The complaint is about illegally possessing sensitive data of individuals including personal information of about 3.5 crore Andhra Pradesh voters. They are the beneficiaries of various Government welfare schemes. The complaint also added that TDP is using the app for advancing their party’s electoral prospects.
This resulted in a slugfest fight not only between ruling and opposition party but also between Andhra and Telangana Government. TDP, YSRCP, and TRS have been accusing one another past few days.
Telangana Home department has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Wednesday. A team of nine officers will now investigate the IT Grids data theft case.
