Abstract: In this paper, I investigate the existence of the NUT charge through the KTN spacetime using shadow observations of Sgr A*. I report that the range of my constraint for the NUT charge is between $-$0.5 and 0.5 for Schwarzschild-like and very slowly rotating KTN black holes. This range extends to 1.5 for spins up to $-$2 and $-$1.5 for spins up to 2 based on Keck observations for both 40$^circ$ and 10$^circ$ viewing angles. For VLTI observations, Schwarzschild-like and very slowly rotating KTN black holes are excluded for a 40$^circ$ viewing angle, and the NUT charge is constrained to a very narrow range for a 10$^circ$ viewing angle. I report that the possibility of having KTN naked singularities in Sgr A* is small, considering the uncertainties in the shadow size.arXiv:2409.16591v1 Announce Type: cross
