BJP leader TG Venkatesh has said he has nothing to do with the disputed Banjara Hills site. To this extent, he released a video. He said he was on a tour of Lakshadweep at the time of the incident. On the 17th, trespassing on AP Gems property took place by TG Vishwaprasad with the group regarding which a case was filed, where his name was not present in the FIR. But, the next day on the 18th his name was included in the file. He clarified that the two groups were fighting for property and he had nothing to do with it.
Venkatesh said that no one had ever mentioned the property to him ever before. He explained that the name TG Vishwaprasad is generally mentioned as TGV, which is similar to his name. He went on to say that just because he is also from Adhoni, just like TG Vishwaprasad, it is really pointless to assume that he is also involved in this issue. Vishwaprasad is said to have issued a statement from the US about the incident. Soon after he learned about the incident, he called his brother immediately and informed the police officer about his statement.
TG Venkatesh said that he was touring Lakshadweep as a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee. He revealed this to the police in writing. While he was in Bengaluru on Tuesday, he also confirmed that his name is not there in the AP Gems compliant. He further confirmed that he was never involved in any of the incidents related to AP Gems and also got a written letter saying so.
On Sunday, a gang from Adoni created a ruckus in the city with deadly weapons. Police have received a complaint that about 90 people tried to occupy land worth Rs 100 crore in Banjara Hills. In the complaint, it was mentioned that the security guards who resisted were threatened and shoved away. Police arrested 63 people and registered a case against TG Venkatesh. However, TG Vishwanath has denied any involvement in the controversy.
