The wife of Vinosh, the person accused of assaulting a women traffic warden at Kathrikadavu, alleged that a fake case has been charged  against her husband. At a press conference held here, Steffy Vinosh said the police have been  unnecessarily raiding their house at Asokha Road in the name of search even during late hours. Steffy, who was accompanied by Vinosh’s brother Dalson and Jithendaran, a   witness of the incident, said her husband did not misbehave with the traffic warden and it was she who abused him. 

“A two-wheeler rider rammed his vehicle on the rear side of our car and fled the spot. We asked the traffic warden to stop the two-wheeler, but she ignored our plea. Though we tried to chase the rider, he escaped through Azad Road. Later, we came back and asked her whether she noted the number of the scooter. She replied that her work  was to control the traffic and not to chase the vehicle. It was then that she used abusive words,” Steffy alleged.

Jithendaran, a person hailing from Kannur who claimed to have been present  at the spot when the incident occurred, said the traffic warden have given wrong statement to the police and media.

“When the incident occurred I was at the junction. I heard the traffic warden using abusive words. I did not see Vinosh assaulting the woman. I  decided to come to the aid of the family after seeing the issue snowballing into a major controversy in television,” he said.

However, Padmini, the traffic warden, denied the allegation. “If I had used abusive words, they should have reported it on the same day. Now, they are coming up with allegations when the police have initiated the search,” she said. Padmini is still at Government Hospital at Nettoor.
