Expressing shock over the report on the Kaviyoor case filed in the CBI court here on Tuesday, the CPM state secretariat has called for a comprehensive probe into ‘Crime’  Nandakumar’s financial sources.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed the report with a shocking revelation that Nandakumar had offered up to Rs 1 crore to Latha Nair, one of the accused in the  Kaviyoor case, to tell the CBI that  prominent CPM leaders and their sons had harassed Anakha, the victim.

The CPM secretariat said in a statement that the State and the Central Governments should order a probe as it was necessary for protecting the free and fair legal system and the judiciary.

The secretariat pointed out that the CBI had called for strong action against Nandakumar  for his attempt to sabotage the Kaviyoor case and implicate prominent CPM leaders and their sons.

“The fact that the proprietor of an obscene magazine offered Rs 1 crore  to one of the accused in the case to make a false statement cannot be seen as an ordinary matter. The CBI report points towards a large-scale conspiracy,” the statement said.

The statement also said that the very credibility of Nandkaumar conducting the Lavalin case in ‘public interest’ has come into question following the CBI report.

Bogus cases are being framed based on fabricated evidence and taking advantage of being in power.

“There are issues beyond the vindictiveness of one person. The report also said that Nandkuamr offered to make Latha Nair an approver.

Proprietor of an obscene magazine cannot simply make an offer to turn an accused in a sex scandal an approver,” the statement said.

The secretariat urged the State and the Central Governments to expose the persons and power centres behind Nandakumar.
