A dead body of an unidentified person was found in a shed located in the agricultural land reportedly belonging to Telugu film actor Akkineni Nagarjuna on Wednesday. 

The police suspect that the death took place around six months ago. The area is currently under observation and an investigation is underway. 

According to the Cyberabad police, the body was found in an unused agricultural land belonging to actor Nagarjuna at Papireddyguda village, under the Keshampet police limits. On Wednesday when some farm labourers who were carrying out agricultural work sensed foul-smell from a shed, they found the decomposed body. 

The police said that land, around 40 acres, was purchased by the popular Telugu actor and was left unused for a long time. 

Akkineni Amala, the wife of the Telugu superstar, had visited the land recently, in the first week of September.
