Gangster Nayeem had set a target of mobilizing Rs200 crore cash in two months as he wanted to leave the country by October. Subsequently, Nayeem on July 31 convened a meeting with his close associates and issued a diktat to his coterie of 12 henchmen setting the individual targets. A list of top 30 builders and businessmen in Hyderabad was prepared, according to police officials.

Several interesting factors came to light during the investigation. Nayeem’s gang started implementing the action plan and made calls to few builders in the city demanding arrangement for Rs 10 crore within a week. “Otherwise, we’ll kill you as per the Bhai’s (Nayeem) order, they threatened a builder, said a police official, who’s part of the investigation.

Several close associates of Nayeem have been arrested and they also confirmed that they were planning to shift to Saudi Arabia soon.

Nayeem Trained in Pak

The Intelligence Bureau (IB) had suspected that Nayeem went to Pakistan and trained in militant operations for seven months. During this period, Nayeem had developed relations with associates of Dawood Ibrahim. Another police official, who studied Nayeem’s modus operandi closely, said that the available documents and what those arrested said further validate his plans of running a mafia company in the country on the lines of Dawood Ibrahim. Nayeem was also involved in weapon smuggling to neighboring states Maharashtra, Bihar, Jharkhan and Bengal.

Reluctant to surrender

Though living underground life for long, Nayeem never thought of surrendering. He further became furious on some occasions, when his close relative advised him it better to lead a normal life after surrendering. But Nayeem refused to listen.

Suffering from serious disease

Police also suspect that Nayeem was suffering from a deadly disease. Officials seized some tablets related to this disease. Some medical reports were also found during the search.

SIT on Nayeem’s links

Some books and diaries found during the search operation reveal several names of top brass in the police departments in several states and political leaders. The Police department is exploring ways to set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT). Telangana DGP is likely to announce the decision on SIT soon. Nayeem had clearly mentioned in his diaries on how much he paid to whom and on which operation. Senior police officials surprised to see the data with clarity as Nayeem recorded his every transaction during the past five years.

It’s learnt that two senior IPS officers were close to Nayeem and made hundreds of crore in the united AP. Some officials further said that several IPS officers and their associates keep calling officers of investigation to know whether their names were in the diary. Another important fact came to light was monthly payments to IPS officers. Nayeem used to pay about Rs 90,000 every month to nine IPS officers working in Hyderabad, Nalgonda and Mahabubnagar districts.

Police officials on Wednesday carried out search operations in Nayeem’s house located in Alkapuri. Huge cash and several documents were found in his bedroom. The police also took Nayeem’s cook Farhana and Apsha, wife of his driver, to the Alkapuri house. Police suspect these two women were bodyguards of Nayeem.

The accounts books are revealing mind-boggling facts about nexus between Nayeem and police department. In addition to this, two-thirds of police officials and staff in Nalgonda district were paid Rs10,000 to Rs20,000 every month by Nayeem, who also registered properties worth Rs16 crore on two IPS officers. Media was also part of Nayeem’s operations. Some journalists received costly gifts from Nayeem. The names of reporters, who received gifts, were mentioned in the account book.

Police arrested several women closely associated with Nayeem.
