The convenor of Save Our Urban Lakes (SOUL), an organisation for protecting water-bodies in and around the city, Thakur Rajkumar Singh, alleged that he had been implicated in a fabricated case for his attempt to protect a government land in Kukatpally from illegal occupation.

He alleged that while enquires of SOUL revealed that GHMC had been illegally allotting building permissions in Saptagiri Colony of Bagh Amber Village in Kukatpally, he was falsely implicated in a case of demolition of a compound wall.

Condemning other such recent targeted attacks on environment and RTI activists in Chattisgarh, the SOUL has demanded the Whistle Blowers' Bill to be passed immediately to ensure safety of activists.
