    He alleged that a huge amount as compensation had been given to people without land, while land owners were given a paltry sum.

    The APCC has reiterated its demand to hand over the case to the CBI as the Special Investigation Cell (SIC) of the state police is "not competent" to probe the scam involving Rs 246 crore, he said.
