Vital information from police department being leaked: P P Thankachan
UDF convenor P P Thankachan has alleged that the CPM leadership had planned a Koothuparambu model attack on Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in Kannur, with an intention to create ‘martyrs’, anticipating a police retaliation.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Thankachan alleged that the CPM state leadership had planned the attack on the Chief Minister but the outcome that they wanted did not materialise.
“They were expecting a police retaliation and firing when the CM was attacked. But since the CM urged the police not to take action against the protesters, such an incident was averted.
The top leaders of the CPM conspired to carry out the attack on the CM, hoping to get martyrs,” he alleged.
He said that vital information from the Police Department was being leaked and a police official owing allegiance to CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan was behind it. “Even after planning the programmes of the Chief Minister secretly, the details of it were leaked to the CPM leadership. A DySP (Intelligence), who hails from Pinarayi, close to the CPM state secretary, leaked the information regarding the Chief Minister’s route to the CPM. CM’s security cannot be ensured when such people are there in the Police Department,” he said.
Thankachan said a complete revamp of the Police Department should take place in Kannur district.
“Policemen owing allegiance to the CPM and who leaks out vital information from the department cannot be allowed to be part of the CM’s security. A complete revamp of the police in Kannur should be carried out,” he said.
He said that in Kadakampally, land deal involving Salim Raj came to the fore when the LDF Government was in power.
“When the complaint regarding it came before the LDF Government, it did not conduct any probe. Now, the Vigilance probe is going on and let the truth come out,” he said. The UDF convenor said that a UDF meet would be held on November 1 to discuss the issue.
