The wife and children of S Burhan, president of the Vilappilsala Janakeeya Samara Samithi, who was arrested on Thursday, met Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan on Friday.
Amina, along with her children, four-year-old Hashim, one-and-a-half-year-old Mariam Huda and three-month-old Muhammed, met the Opposition Leader at his official residence on Friday noon. Though she submitted a memorandum, the Opposition Leader did not respond to her demand, said Samithi office-bearers.
Burhan was said to be on a hunger strike at Kattakkada police station. He was later transferred to the Poojappura jail. Meanwhile, the Samara Samithi has started discussions on their further course of action.
‘’We will fight the case legally. If the government thinks police action can deter the people of Vilappilsala, it’s sheer foolishness,’’ said a Samithi office-bearer.
