Hand over Nayeem’s case to CBI: CPI to govt
Communist Party of India (CPI) State Secretary Ch Venkat Reddy accused that the State government was diluting slain gangster Nayeem’s case and demanded that the case be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Warangal: Communist Party of India (CPI) State Secretary Ch Venkat Reddy accused that the State government was diluting slain gangster Nayeem’s case and demanded that the case be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
He said in order to ensure speedy justice to the victims, of illegal acts committed by the gangster and his accomplices, and to return the property grabbed by them to the rightful owners, the CBI should handle the case.
Venkat Reddy addressed a gathering of victims, who were wronged by Nayeem, here on Tuesday at the event ‘Nayeem Badithula Parirakshana Samithi’ headed by Ch Jagadish Yadav. Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao promised stern action against Nayeem’s accomplices but backed out as names of ruling party leaders and senior police officials surfaced in the probe, he added.
Even after 18-months since the killing of Nayeem, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up by the government remained ineffective in taking the case to a logical conclusion and ensuring justice to the victims, he alleged.
The CPI leader said that soon an intensive agitation would be taken up wherein the leaders of all Left parties, peoples’ organisations and rights activists will join hands to seek justice.
He wanted the government to reveal the details of properties grabbed by Nayeem and gang and their ill earned money which was seized by the SIT. Though it was a fact that Nayeem was a creation of past regimes, everyone expected that the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) would crackdown on those who aided Nayeem in running his underworld, but that did not happen, he said.
S Karunakar and P Saraiah of CPI, G Prabhakar Reddy of CPM, Esam Venu of Forward Bloc, N Appa Rao and A Krishna of CPI (ML) New Democracy, B Rama Devi of Telangana Praja Front, K Shivaji of Revolutionary Socialist Party, Juluri Kishan of Human Rights Forum and others were present.
