Telangana BC welfare minister Gangula Kamalakar gets fake ED notice | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: In what is suspected to be the handiwork of miscreants to extort money, a fake ED notice dispatched to Telangana BC welfare minister Gangula Kamalakar has now sent the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a tizzy. ED has filed a criminal case against unknown individuals in the Central Crime Station (CCS) after finding out about a fake arrest order sent to Kamalakar saying that his two brothers would be arrested by ED.
The fake arrest notice triggered a controversy with news circulating that it was related to a mining company linked to the Kamalakar family.
Interestingly, the minister got the fake order in the backdrop of upcoming Huzurabad assembly byelection, where BJP and his other political adversaries accused him of committing irregularities in the mining business, a charge he has vehemently denied.
Kamalakar has been playing a key role in the Telangana Rashtra Samithi campaign for the Huzurabad bypoll.
Hyderabad police has registered a case under section 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (fraudulently or dishonestly using genuine any document or electronic record which he knows or has reason to believe to be a forged), 420 (cheating) of IPC against unknown persons.
In its complaint, ED even wanted the Hyderabad police to find out from Kamalakar who sent him the alleged fake arrest order.
“Kamalakar called up an officer in ED and said that he was contacted by a person with a message and told him that his brothers would be arrested by ED on August 13 and if he wants to avoid the arrest, then the accused (message sender) can help him in settling the matter with ED,” the Enforcement Directorate official said in their official complaint.
Based on the ED’s complaint, when Hyderabad police contacted Kamalakar, he in turn questioned the police. It is learnt that the minister asked the police how can ED file a case when he is the recipient of the fake arrest order.
Till now Kamalakar has not filed a complaint on the fake order.
“We think it’s a work done by miscreants to extort money or to create nuisance as the minister is busy in pre-poll work in Huzurabad. If he lodges a formal complaint, it should help us to reach the bottom of the case,” one investigator said.
