10

Prime Time Zone, Crime Bureau: The controversy over the gangster Naeem case, which has established a criminal empire in the state, has reached the central government. Naidu wrote a letter to the Forum for Good Governance Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February asking him to direct the state government to hand over the case to the CBI, saying that it was not easy for the Telangana state police to investigate the case as Naeem had not limited his crimes to a single Telangana state but had spread to Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Wrote. In the letter, Forum for Good Governance Secretary M Padmanabhareddy explained in detail why the Naeem case was handed over to the CBI for investigation. Five years have passed since the Naeem encounter. Padmanabhareddy alleged that the SIT appointed for the trial of the case has not carried out any investigation so far. Two hundred cases have been registered against Naeem’s followers just for the sake of calculations. He criticized the SIT for becoming dull with political and sectarian pressures. The letter not only expressed doubts that a proper trial could not take place with Sit, but also made it clear that those who collaborated with Naidu would not be punished. Naeem said he was not only a Naxalite but also a street rowdy. He said the lands of many innocent people had been forcibly confiscated with the backing of politicians and police for two decades.

After the encounter, Naeem said 24 firearms, 2 sten guns, 752 registration documents, 130 diaries and 602 cell phones were seized during house searches. Although two counting machines were used to calculate the amount of money received in bundles, only Rs 3.74 lakh was accounted for and only assets worth Rs 2.16 crore were seized. He said there were reports of assets in Goa as well. Despite the propaganda that the SIT had links with the police officers at the beginning of the investigation, the SIT said that there were many suspicions about giving clean cheat to the police officers. In August 2016, the Chief Secretary to the State Government was asked to hand over the case to the CBI, but the SIT rejected our plea that the investigation was being carried out properly. Although a complaint was lodged with the state governor in October 2020, no action was taken. Padmanabhareddy said that he had written a letter to Prime Minister Modi under these circumstances. Padmanabhareddy said the central government had written to the state chief minister Somesh Kumar to take appropriate action on the complaint. Forum for Good Governance Secretary Padmanabhareddy demanded that the case be handed over to the CBI for alleged involvement of politicians and police.
