KOCHI: Ayyappadas, of Thrikkannamangal, Kottarakkara, who claims to be the lover of the woman allegedly involved in the bobbitisation case, on Monday approached the Kerala High Court seeking a directive to the Thiruvananthapuram police to produce her before the court.
He alleged the girl was illegally detained by Sangh Parivar activists. Ayyappadas stated he was looking after a hotel owned by Ganeshananda Theerthapada Swami, an accused in the case, at Kolencherry. “The victim gashed Ganeshananda’s genitals with a knife when he attempted to rape her,” he submitted.
The Petta police had registered a case against the accused for the offence under Section 376 (rape) of IPC and sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).
In the habeas corpus petition, he said even as the investigation is progressing, a criminal conspiracy is being hatched by some activists of Sangh Parivar with the assistance of a criminal lawyer who appeared for Ganeshananda in the case. “As a result, the victim was forcibly taken from their house and illegally confined at Nattarachira, Nedumangad. She was also forced to write a letter to Ganeshananda’s counsel denying her earlier version against the accused.
Though a complaint was filed before the police seeking to redeem her from illegal detention, no action has been taken. The petitioner alleged there was a move to make him a scapegoat so as to protect Ganeshananda from prosecution.
