The names of TRS leaders are emerging in the case of casino king Chikoti Praveen, which has become a topic of discussion. It is being discussed that many leaders along with him have participated in the hawala racket. In particular, the name of Putta Madhu, who is accused of masterminding the murder of High Court advocate couple Gattu Vaman Rao and Nagamani, has come to the fore.
It is being spread that Putta Madhu is a key partner in the hawala affair with Chikoti Praveen. It seems that a granite merchant went on a trip to Nepal with him.

A huge amount of cash was found in the searches conducted at 8 places in Hyderabad.
