In the aftermath of Dilsukhnagar twin blast some media circles presented bizarre and sensational news reports to influence the minds of investigative agencies and create suspicion among public. A Telugu Television channel reported that the blasts were reportedly planned from a lodge named Shilpi in Dilsukhnagar area. They claimed that Raju bhayya alias Akhtar stayed at room number 303 in Shilpi lodge. They also linked Akhtar with Indian Mujahideen chief Yasin Bhatkal in SIMI.
But when our correspondent went to the lodge in question to verify the fact it was found that the person who stayed at room number 303 in Shilpi lodge was not the friend of the Yaseen Bhatkal, the self styled commander of so called Indian Mujahideen but he was Purna Chandra Raju, son of Venkateshwarulu resident of Miryalguda and his wife. The prejudiced and anti-Muslim TV channels and print media did not hesitate to represent Purna Chandra Raju as Akhtar.
The TV channels also reported that on February 15, two persons named Ali Khan and Sajid occupied room number 303, but vacated it the very next day without informing the hotel management.
When verified it was found that all the names are fictitious and are created by TV channels. Hotel co-owner Ratnakar Reddy told that nearly 40 media correspondents talked to him and he informed them about the true facts. Police even told that the hotel administration can take legal action against the channels and newspapers telecasting and publishing baseless reports.
