HYDERABAD: Penumalli Madhu, former CPM MP, has demanded a CBI inquiry into the suicide of Mohammed Aqeel, a resident of the old city, due to alleged harassment from the Moghalpura police. Speaking at a press conference here on Thursday, Madhu said the 25-year-old Aqeel was arrested in 2010 by the Special Investigation Team for allegedly inciting communal violence, attacking police and attempting to commit murder, but the youth was innocent.

After his release, the Moghalpura police opened a rowdy sheet against Aqeel, and he was being harassed by policemen, Madhu said and appealed to home minister P Sabitha Indra Reddy to form a special team of investigation to probe the reasons for his suicide and take action against the erring policemen.

“In the old city money lenders, who collect exorbitant interest, are harassing poor Muslim families.

Policemen blink at the illegal business by taking bribes.

The government should step in,” he said..“In the old city police stations rowdy sheets are opened against 900 youths.

Once in six months, the police department has to clear the cases but is not doing it.

GHMC is doing nothing for the development of Muslims,” he added.
