No Evidence Of Nayeem-TRS Nexus: Government To HC
The machinery argued that a CBI probe into cases related to slain underworld kingpin Mohammed Nayeemuddin was unnecessary.
Hyderabad | 31st December 2016
The Telangana government argued in the Hyderabad High Court that a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into cases related to slain underworld kingpin Mohammed Nayeemuddin and his alleged nexus with politicians, top police officers and international mafia was unnecessary.
In a counter to the Public Interest Litigation filed by CPI leader K Narayana seeking a CBI probe, Telangana Principal Secretary for Home Rajiv Trivedi in the court claimed that the police had found no leads so far to link Nayeemuddin to TRS politicians or police officials.
Trivedi - in his affidavit - denied allegations that an ex-DGP knew Nayeem. He also said that the investigating team did not find any ties between Dawood Ibrahim and Nayeem.
"We will definitely take action if any such information comes to the fore," he said and added that there was no proof to back the allegation that the State had financed the reneged Maoist for procuring information on the naxalites.
Pointing towards the work done by State police, Trivedi said that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) had already registered 175 criminal cases against Nayeemuddin and his associates, of which 167 were fresh cases and eight were old ones which had been re-opened. The Rachakonda Commissionerate recorded 135 cases, followed by the Nalgonda and Cyberabad Commissionerates. Sixteen chargesheets had also been filed so far and 116 people arrested, and six minors who were allegedly abused by Nayeem were also rescued, Trivedi said.
