After five years of the death of Sadiq Batcha, a 24-year-old man from Ariyalur district has claimed to have murdered him. He is said to be a close aide of former telecom minister, A Raja and was the managing director of a real estate firm in 2011.

According to Times of India, he also alleged that former state police intelligence chief Jaffer Sait and Raja’s close relative Paramesh Kumar are also part of the murder.

Talking to the media in Trichy, the 24-year-old man, K Prabhakaran said, “We killed Sadiq Batcha at the office of Green House Promoters in T Nagar in the late hours on March 16, 2011. Jaffer Sait strangulated Sadiq Batcha with a towel and Paramesh Kumar pressed his knee on Sadiq’s neck while I was holding his legs. Later, Paramesh Kumar Kumar and his aides hanged the body in the house of Sadiq Batcha to make it look as if it was suicide.”

He said that Sadiq Batcha was murdered as he gave key information in the 2G case to the CBI which could go against A Raja. However, he clarified that Raja was not part of the murder.

Prabhakaran said that he helped in the murder as he was offered a huge amount of money for being part of the murder. “Being the son of a poor man, I wanted to earn quick money . I established links with Paramesh Kumar through my uncle Suba Ilavarasan when I was 19 years old. I became acquainted with Jaffer Sait when I gave a false complaint against a local PMK leader, Vaithilingam, at the behest of Paramesh Kumar. I believed my links with them will help me flourish in life but I was betrayed,“ he said according to TOI.

He alleged that he had informed Vaiko about the murder but MDMK leader told him that he will bring out the issue after the elections.

Prabhakaran said that he was living in Chennai and different parts of Tamil Nadu after an attempt to get money from Paramesh.

Atlast he decided to reveal the mystery behind the case. He said that he does not think he will live long. He wants all the accused to be arrested before anything happens to him.

However, the officials of state and central intelligence agencies reached the venue of the press conference but did not arrest him.
