In the video, mother and son shed tears talking about the kind of bad things they had to experience because of the TRS members who ruined their life.
“I did business with Basam Sreenu. Jitender Goud gave me money as Sreenu didn’t have any. Then Jitender Goud asked for a 50 percent stake in the business. We told him that we cannot give him the stake. I was called to PS based on a Facebook post made by a person. At the PS, then CI Nagarjuna Goud grabbed my phone. He tried to file a case against me. The very next day, I complained about the same to the Medak SP.”
“After 10 days, he said that I had nothing to do with the Facebook post. The police gave the information on my phone to Jitender Goud. Since then, Jitender Goud’s men have been harassing me with information on the phone. I have also complained to the PS that he is threatening me. They went on doing this to me for over a year. They did not let me do my business, I had to take debts, and my financial status was completely ruined. My family members were embarrassed and I was clinically depressed. I could not handle the betrayal my own friend did to me. I and my mother are killing ourselves as we are unable to handle the pain anymore,” he said in the selfie video.
