Zameer Ahmed Khan

Bengaluru, Sept 11: Rubbishing the allegations of having links with the drugs racket as baseless, Congress legislator B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan on Friday said that he was being targeted for being a Muslim.

“I’m a minority, a Muslim...some people aren’t able to digest my growth,” Khan told reporters after meeting Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah.

Khan said he would file a defamation suit against entrepreneur Prashanth Sambaragi, who has accused the former minister of having links with those allegedly involved in the drug racket.

"Whatever allegations have been levelled against me, I will answer them legally. I will not discuss it before the media,” he said.

“It’s not the Congress, but the BJP that’s in power. Actor Sanjjanaa Galrani is in police custody. I have already said that the investigation should be done thoroughly, and if I’m involved, then I will transfer all my assets to the government,” he said.
