Hyderabad | 3rd October 2020
Former minister & ex-Leader of Opposition in the Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir strongly condemned the state government for giving a clean chit to 25 police personnel who allegedly maintained links with the slain gangster Mohammed Nayeemuddin.
"It is shocking to learn that the Special Investigation Team has given a clean chit to all the 25 police personnel earlier accused of having links with slain gangster Nayeem. Those officials included two ASPs, 7 DSPs, 13 CIs, two head constables and one constable. The state government should clarify why the SIT first named these officials in the case and why were then given a clean chit," he demanded.
Quoting different reports, Shabbir Ali also said that as many as 250 cases were registered in connection with the illegal activities of the gangster. He demanded that the government disclose the details of the status of those cases, and also explain why investigation was still pending in more than 25% of those cases.
"Also, the SIT had deposited cash of Rs 2.08 crore and Rs 4.30 lakh along with 1.944 kg of gold and 2.482 kg of silver in the court at Rajendranagar. Land documents pertaining to 1,015 acres were also deposited in jurisdictional courts in various cases. The state government should give details of how a gangster accumulated so much of wealth. People also have a right to know the names of politicians who supported Nayeem in his illegal activities," he added.
Shabbir Ali also alleged that none of the SITs formed by the KCR government had completed their investigations in conclusive and time-bound manners.
"The SITs were either used to give clean chits to the suspects connected with the ruling party or were not allowed to submit their reports. Where is the report of SIT which was formed to investigate the intermediate fiasco? What is the status of the SIT investigation into the encounter of five Muslim youth in an alleged fake encounter?" he asked, and demanded that the state government issue a white paper on the SITs formed and the statuses of their reports.
The Congress leader alleged that the Nayeem SIT did not conduct its investigation in a proper way and that the gangster's nexus with police officials and politicians was covered up. He therefore demanded that Nayeem's case should be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation for a fair probe.
