HYDERABAD: Alleging that they were facing threat from the commercial tax minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav in a land dispute case, residents of Neelambalaiah Doddi slum area of Sanathnagar sought police protection for their lives.

They alleged that the minister supported a person, who has illegally claimed the slum area by creating fake land documents and threatened them to vacate the place immediately. 

According to the residents, a person named Dr. Neelam Krishna claimed the land by creating fake documents.

When the victims approached the minister, who is also the local MLA, he had reportedly supported the claim made by Krishna and warned them to vacate the place instead.

Terrified by the threats, the residents approached former MLA Marri Shashidhar Reddy and sought his intervention. Reddy on Thursday took the victims to Hyderabad City Police Commissioner M Mahender Reddy and requested him for protection of their lives from the minister.

Shashidhar Reddy said that the slum land belongs to the government and it was identified as government property in 2009.

However, Krishna and Srinivas Yadav recently sent their men to the slum and forced the residents to vacate their houses, Reddy alleged.
