Kannur: Kannur Town Police has registered case against over 20 BJP workers for allegedly threatening Kannur DySP P. Sadanandan and Thalaserry DySP Prince Abraham, who were part of the team investigating CPM worker Paduvilayi Mohanan murder case.
The cases are registered under IPC 120 (B) for conspiracy and Kerala Police Act 117 (E) for criminal intimidation and for making threatening remarks against the police, based on a complaint from Mr Sadanandan after observing over 20 Facebook IDs spreading the threat.
According to the complaint, through many Facebook accounts, a video of BJP activist Kuppi Subeesh is circulating along with allegations against the officers including using third degree methods. During the questioning, Kuppi Subeesh had confessed that he was involved in the murder of NDF worker Fazal in which CPM leader Karayi Rajan and Karayi Chandrasekaran are defendants.
Subeesh allegedly admitted that the Karayis had no role in the crime. NDF worker Muhammad Fazal was murdered at Thalassery on October 22, 2006. The CBI in its charge sheet had said that he was killed due to political animosity.
District police chief Kori Sanjaykumar Gurudin said if any cognisable offence were proved, they would take appropriate action....
