Nayeem formed a criminal gang and was allegedly indulging in many grabbings, extortions, kidnappings etc, which have not been reported to Police due to fear of reprisal, police said.

    The Role of criminal lawyers and Judges is to be ascertained. Judges never find a criminal as criminal, if kickbacks are given regularly. Govt has to kill that criminal in encounter at the end. Judges are the hidden force who worked even behind Gangster Nayeem to grow in many folds. Criminals are eliminated, but not criminal lawyers? why so. Similar to Gray Hound Police, there should be some other force, which should take complaints against criminal lawyers too. They only scare people/Victims further with bogus chargesand IPC acts. Hence there should be some cell in Intelligence bureau. Ex- Sri Godey Satish(7595). he hared many family people not to come forward to give evidence against his client smt Birudha Raja Ratnam, lecturer, ASP Oriental College, Kothi, Hyderbad. she got fakeSC papers. She cheated many people using her status as Govt College lecturer. She abused many in filthy language, once refunds are asked for the amount she collected from victims.Never believe sri Godey Satish and his bogus affidavits, substantial evidence. Substantial Evidence is bogus just like his character. Always rely on relatives, siblings and neighbors for truth.
