Interview Nizam case –
Khushboo Agrahari Q1. Can I ask you about the demand of few Telengana politicians to shift the Nizam jewellery collection to Hyderabad? Is it a right claim?
Parochialism should end in this country. What’s the difference between razakars who sided, killed innocents at instance of Kate nizam & them?
Q2. They want it housed in Salarjung museum at Hyderabad. Is it safe?
Ans: Most definitely not. Please go into parliament records. Things have vanished. Many replicas substituted. It’s a house of horrors. Not marvels
Q3. Where is the wealth now?
Ans: It’s housed at RBI vaults in New Delhi. Used to be at HSBC, Mumbai vault during pendency of the Nizam jewellery cases.
Q4. How did ownership shift from Nizam to Govt of India ?
Ans: After a long court battle. Where eventually SC directed first option to ‘purchase’ to GoI. Parliament assented. Ownership shifted to GoI.

Q9. Why do you oppose a permanent exhibition at Hyderabad? After all, locals claim it a heritage?

Q10. So,an exhibition will only fetch ticket money?

Q16: Is it true that you got passport impounded of the sons of Nizam, a few judges, officials, etc.in the matter?

Q17. Are there cases still Nizam estate related pending in courts of law?
Q18. Any living witnesses to your stellar fight against anti nationals to safeguard national treasure Sirji?

Q2. Is there more treasure belonging to late Nizam and devolving on Govt of India Sirji?
Ans: There is! Parliament Act details all. Babus & @narendramodi ji unaware. Else, it can feed all poverty alleviation & infra projects of India.

Ans: It’s only for PM to be briefed about. Not for public consumption now. Let us discuss some other time, please. Have to go now. Thanks. Jai Hind
