President of the BC Welfare Association R Krishnaiah on Saturday denied any links with slain gangster Nayeem.
Addressing mediapersons today, he alleged that the police had deliberately included his name in a chargesheet filed in the Nayeem case claiming that he had links with the gangster, only to malign his image.
Krishnaiah, however, admitted that he had threatened Nayeem on several occasions over the phone on behalf of some people who sought his (Krishnaiah's) help.
Krishnaiah claimed the police had included his name in the chargesheet as he was fighting against the State government on the problems being faced by the BC community in the State.
He also demanded that the State government distribute the tainted money recovered from the possession of Nayeem after his encounter, to the latter's victims, and that the State government also make Nayeem's diary public.
Krishnaiah added that an inquiry by the CBI would bring to fore several facts in the case.
