THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Some people in the government are trying to safeguard SNDP general secretary Vellappally Natesan from the criminal cases registered against him, including the one at Aluva police station recently, Alappuzha DCC president K K Shukkoor has alleged. He was speaking at a press meet on clarifying the allegations levelled by Natesan and his son Thushar Vellappally on the issue of change of name of Sankar Bhavan to Nehru Bhavan by the district Congress leadership.
“There is no let up in the case registered in Aluva police station in which he made a hate remark on Noushad, who died when he had tried to rescue two labourers in a manhole in Kozhikode the other day. The Home Department cannot run away from the responsibility of taking action against Nateshan.
The police inability in taking further proceedings in the case raises suspicion. I am going to take up the issue with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala, he said. Shukkoor said Natesan was a ‘wanted’ criminal as he had been evading arrest in two criminal cases charged against him at Mararikulam police station and Aluva police station respectively.
“It is ridiculous that a ‘wanted’ criminal like Natesan shared the stage with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.
