Nayeemuddin's world of terror: Teenage girls with AK-47s and Gaddafi-killing video on cellphone

New Delhi: When a Telangana police party raided the house of the slain Maoist-turned-gangster, Mohammed Nayeemuddin, they found nine minor girls, including a 40-day-old baby. The gangster was killed in an encounter with the police in Mahabubnagar district on 8 August, after which multiple searches are being conducted to unravel his crime empire.

While the police are investigating the arc of gangster’s human trafficking network, what some of his girl victims have revealed to authorities has left them baffled. According to sources, the girls have disclosed that Nayeemuddin would use armed teenage girls to intimidate some of his victims into signing away their properties. He would call property owners to his various dens and sit in front of them, saying nothing for a while. After a few minutes, a teenage girl holding an AK-47 rifle would appear and stand beside the hapless property owner. It is then that Nayeemuddin would take out his cellphone and play a video of a man being badly brutalised by a mob and then killed mercilessly. The property owner would be so frightened by this spectacle that he immediately signed the deal papers.

Sources have revealed that the video Nayeemuddin played on his cellphone is of the 2011 killing of the Libyan leader, Colonel Gaddafi, at the hands of rebel militia.

In some instances, Nayeemuddin would make very young girls stand in similar position, minus the gun, in front of their prospective buyers. These girls are believed to be victims of his human trafficking racket.

According to police, Nayeemuddin’s mother-in-law, Sultana, procured most of these girls. She is a midwife and would buy these girls from poor Lambada tribal families. According to the police, these girls would be given Muslim names and many might have been sent to Gulf countries or sold off to criminal gangs in Mumbai. At least one girl has told the police that she was kidnapped and kept imprisoned in Nayeemuddin’s house.

The police have so far recovered arms and ammunition, and explosives, gold ornaments, cash, and a large number of documents related to lands transactions from Nayeemuddin’s house and that of his associates. Police sources reveal that names of several politicians and police officers have been found in Nayeemuddin’s diaries. The superintendent of police in Mahabubnagar, Rema Rajeshwari, declined to comment but said that further investigation was on and that efforts were being made to apprehend some of the gangster’s absconding associates. The police have now constituted a Special Investigation Team to look into these cases.
