Hyderabad: Writer and social activist Kancha Ilaiah lodged a complaint against posters about him being pasted near his house in Tarnaka, at the Osmania University police station, here on Monday.

Ilaiah said in his complaint that he was being targeted by Arya-Vysya leaders including TG Venkatesh, Ramakrishna and Ramana for the last two months. On the night of November 4, several posters in Telugu were pasted all along the walls of Tarnaka Street No. 1 and his house.

The posters had sentences with a threatening tone, he said, adding that BJP MLC Ramchander Rao, who lives in the same area, too had been targeting him in many meetings saying ‘Hindus will teach him a lesson’. The writer has asked the police to investigate the posters and book a case.

The Osmania University police are awaiting legal opinion on the complaint. They are yet to register a case.
