KANNUR: A day after a video recording of his confession about playing a role in the murder of NDF activist Mohammed Fazal was made public, RSS worker Subeesh on Saturday alleged he was tortured by the police into making the false statement.  “I was forced to confess after being physically and mentally tortured in police custody for three consecutive days. They threatened me and my family. I feared for my life. DySP Sadanandan and Prince Abraham even offered me money and a job to my wife,” Subeesh told reporters.

“My confession before the camera was prepared and taught to me by the cops. I never voluntarily made any statement about me or the RSS playing any role in Fazal’s murder,” he said.

Subeesh claimed he had never met Fazal and was framed by the police.

“The police took me into custody. I was later booked for the murder of CPM leader K Mohanan. I was produced before the court and remanded in police custody for six days, during which the cops forced me to confess to Fazal’s murder,” said Subeesh, who alleged nobody paid heed to his complaints regarding the police torture.

“I first told the magistrate about the police’s atrocities. I then told the Koothuparamba court and the CBI about it. There are documents to prove this,” he said.
