THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The crime branch investigating into the e-mail snooping case has framed a Homoeo District Medical Officer as second accused in the case for issuing fake medical certificates to the hi-tech cell SI Biju Salim who is on remand.

The crime branch probing the case, on Thursday, submitted before the Judicial First Class Magistrate court that DMO PA Dasthakeer had provided medical certificates to the accused Biju Salim whenever he had gone on leave for conspiring. It also said that the accused doctor was aware of the plan of the SI and had issued certificates through the junior doctors on several occasions.

SI Biju Salim was arrested on Saturday last by a special team headed by crime branch SP Thomas Jolly Cherian for leaking sensitive intelligence reports from the hi-tech cell after forging documents.

The issue snowballed into a big row after a vernacular magazine published a report stating that e-mails of 258 members of a particular community were hacked. This had attracted hue and cries from various sections of the society.  Meanwhile, the crime branch officials said that more people would be arrested in connection with the case.
