Prof. Kancha Illaiah, whose book 'Saamajika Smugglarlu: Kommatlu,' became a huge controversy, spoke to the media. He was responding to the threats from Arya Vysya groups, who condemned the title as well as the content in the book. They said that it was totally false to call all Vysyas as 'smugglers.' Today, a tense situation developed in front of Illaiah's house at Tarnaka, when Arya Vysyas tried to mob it. Police had to forcible round up the mobs and whisk them away.
