A robbery attempt by a local politician at the house of an NRI businessman in Kasaragod district of Kerala on Sunday was caught on CCTV camera. The accused has been identified as CPI(M) Vayalodi Branch Secretary C Raghavan.

Younus, the businessman, and his family live in the UAE and nobody was at home when the accused broke into his home. On Monday, Younus’s relatives saw the front door of his house open and informed the police.

According to the police, there was no money or gold in the house and since the house owner was not at home, it cannot be identified whether something valuable has been lost. 

When Younus' relatives later checked the CCTV footage of his house, the accused was identified. 

Chandera police told The News Minute that the accused is absconding since his photo was published. They further said that he used an iron rod to break the front door.

As per the CCTV footage, the accused arrived for the robbery in white shirt and white dhoti with an iron rod.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) district leadership has dismissed Raghavan from the party.
