THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A week after the widely-publicised ‘Operation Kuber’ was launched, a government servant who was found allegedly involved in illegal money lending, is still absconding.
Jayachandran, aka ‘Bullet Jayan’, the head warden in the Alappuzha District jail, is the government employee who is missing. The Medical College police registered a case against him for illegal moneylending.
According to police, Jayachandran had been missing even 10 days before the day of raid. ‘’We have started investigation to trace his hideout. We have approached the cellphone service providers to find out his location if he is using mobile phone,’’ the Medical College Circle Inspector said. There is also a case registered against him for drunken driving, he added.
During the raid on Jayachandran’s house, police had seized Rs 1 lakh in cash and various documents including 11 vehicle registration certificates and 16 title deeds. Apart from this, a sword was also recovered from his house near the MCH. Cases have been registered against him under the Kerala Money Lenders Act, Exorbitant Interest Act and Arms Act.
