Nayeemuddin (died August 8, 2016)), commonly known as Nayeem, was a naxal leader and alleged criminal. He first gained prominence in 1993 due to his alleged involvement killing of Indian Police Service officer K. S. Vyas. He was a resident of Bhongir located in Nalgonda district on the border of Hyderabad.
Nayeem was a leader of Maoist squad which was previously known as "naxalites of People's War". Later, he surrendered to the police. Civil rights activists[who?] claim that after his surrender, Nayeem served as an informer to the police and helped in the elimination of many naxalites and their sympathisers.[when?] Police deny this claim.
Nayeem died in a gun battle with police in 2016.
