BJP’s Kerala State General Secretary K Surendran has been booked for making derogatory statements against two Deputy Superintendents of Kerala police on a Facebook post in connection with the revelations in the Mohammad Fazal murder case.
“He has been booked under sections 117 (e) and 120 (o) of Kerala Police Act, for the intention of preventing police officials from delivering duty and for creating obstructions through communications respectively. Both are bailable offenses,” Kannur Town Sub Inspector Shaji Patteri told The News Minute.
The case has been registered over remarks on the leader’s Facebook post against DySPs Sadanandan and Price Abraham. In the post, Surendran accused the police officers for trying to save Karayi Rajan and Karayi Chandrasekharan, the accused in the Fazal murder.
Surendran also asked the policemen to quit if they wished to work for the CPI(M), and alleged that they are acting in favour of the Left Government. “If you are party workers, quit the job and do party work. Have they been assigned by the Pinarayi Government to conduct re-probe in the case? What vested interests do you have in this case?” the post asks. He also alleged that the policemen fabricated a video to save the Karayi brothers in the murder case.
Karayi Rajan and Karayi Chandrasekharan, known as Karayi brothers, are CPI(M) workers, who had been accused of killing Popular Front of India member Fazal. On June 9, Karayi Rajan submitted a video of an RSS member Subeesh allegedly confessing to the crime at the CBI court in Kochi. It has been more than ten years since the murder of the PFI worker.
In the video, Subeesh allegedly confessed of attacking and killing Fazal along with four other RSS members on October 22, 2006 at Thalassery. Subeesh also allegedly confesses that no RSS or BJP leader had instructed them to kill Fazal.
