BENGALURU: Gangster-turned-writer Agni Sridhar, accused of harbouring suspects in an attempt-to-murder case, said the raid on his house was unnecessary. He also took exception to a police officer allegedly slapping him.
Sridhar spoke about the raid on his house on Wednesday, in which foreign-made liquor and firearms were reportedly seized. He stressed that his health problem, due to which he couldn’t be arrested at that time, was genuine, saying he had problems with his kidneys.
Regarding the case in which he has been accused of harbouring two people charged with attempt-to-murder— Silent Sunil and Onte Rohit— he said, “I have never said that I don’t know them.” He added, “The police could have told me over the phone to send Rohit and Sunil, and I would have. But they conducted a raid, and that’s why I’m
angry. Am I a terrorist? Do I have AK47s?”
