THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Mother of UAE-based entrepreneur Nazil Abdullah, whose complaint against BDJS leader Thushar Vellappally landed the latter in jail in Ajman, has come out against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan stating that she felt bad about his intervention to get bail for a person who cheated her son.
Speaking to reporters at her house in Mathilakam here on Friday, Rabiya Abdullah said his son, a B.Tech in electrical engineering, suffered huge financial losses in his construction business after teaming up with Mr Vellappally as a sub-contractor.
“Mr Thushar did not make payments in time and my son had to pay the sub-contract workers with his own money,” she said. “With the cheque given by Mr Thushar bouncing at the bank, the UAE police picked him from his apartment in Dubai while his wife was around. The family of Nazil returned to Kerala due to the burden of debts. We had requested SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan as well as his son several times to settle the dues but in vain.”
Nazil has spent eight months in UAE jail and his father Nambi-punjilathu Abdullah, a CPM sympathiser had to sell off his land to settle some of the debts of Nazil,” Rabiya said. He also suffered a stroke due to mental pressure, Ms Rabiya said. “Workers and suppliers to Nazil’s sub-contracting firm started visiting our house here at Puthiyakkavu near Kodungallur demanding money,” she recalled.
