Son of former minister, Vikram Goud, had plotted his own shooting episode, some four months ago. He hired a supari gang and told each one of them what to do. He made them rehearse the scenes, like in a film. When they expressed fear, he instigated them by calling them cowards. He made a deal of Rs. 50 lakh with the gangsters. His wife had no knowledge of his plot. Vikram wanted to gain political mileage as well as evade his creditors, through the episode. But his plan went wrong and he has to now go to jail. Commissioner of Police (CP) Mahender Reddy disclosed the details at a press conference.
