Nanda Kumar had taken the land from film producer Daggubati Suresh Babu on lease a few years back. Afterwards, the accused had built two illegal sheds at the same land without obtaining due permission from the concerned, said the GHMC authorities.
The ‘illegal’ restaurant was being run in a partnership with one named Pramod.
