Hyderabad: National president of BC Welfare Association R. Krishnaiah on Saturday denied any links with slain gangster Nayeem. He alleged that the police had deliberately included his name in a chargesheet filed in the Nayeem case stating that he had links with the slain ganster only to malign his image. Krishnaiah, however, admitted that he had threatened Nayeem on several occasions over phone on behalf of some people, who sought his help.
Addressing mediapersons here today, Krishnaiah condemned the act of the police in including his name in the charge-sheet 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 possession of Nayeem after his encounter to his victims. Demanding that the State government make Nayeem’s diary public, Krishnaiah said an inquiry by the CBI would bring to fore several facts in the case.
