Hyderabad: The probe into the dargah Shah Khamosh land scam is set to begin afresh. Sleuths of the Central Crime Station (CSS) of the city police were re-examining the case after receiving vital documents.
The united AP State Wakf Board had filed a case in 2014 against Syed Akbar Nizamuddin Hussaini alleging misappropriation of funds and selling Wakf land in his capacity as its mutawalli (caretaker). The board had complained to the police that Akbar had misused the dargah land. About 867 acres were with the dargah Hussain Shah Wali and huge land parcel was sold.
The then special officer, Shaik Mohammed Iqbal, had filed the complaint with the Central Crime Station. The Board estimated the property worth `2,000 crore.
The CCS had asked the Board and the minorities welfare department to identify the land and provide the documents. “No officials have come forward and provided any document so far. However, during our investigation we got vital records and are re-examining the case,” said a senior official of the detective department.
Unable to get co-operation from the Wakf Board, CCS sleuths were facing problems in proceeding further with the investigation. However, their efforts got a fillip when they secured the documents. The officials who were asked to record their statements, failed to respond to the notices or had denied receiving any notice or letters, sources said.
“We are re-examining the case and have issued fresh notices to the concerned officials to present the documents and other records before us,” said the official.
Meanwhile, Syed Akbar Nizamuddin Hussaini said that the case was politically motivated and was civil in nature. “I have done no wrong,” he said....
