ALUVA: The Ernakualm Rural police on Tuesday submitted a first information report in the Aluva Judicial First Class Magistrate Court in connection with the case against Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan over his alleged inflammatory speech during a public meeting in Aluva.
Ernakulam Rural SP G H Yathish Chandra told ‘Express’ that filing an FIR in the court in the event of registering a criminal case against one person is a routine procedure. The police have launched an investigation into the incident.
When asked if the police would record his arrest in the wake of the invocation of Section 153 A of the IPC, which is a non-bailable, against him, he said arrest will be made if the cognizable offence levelled against him is proved in the detailed investigation being conducted by the police.
The Aluva police on Monday registered a case against him under Section 153 (A) of Indian Penal Code upon a complaint filed by KPCC president V M Sudheeran.
The case was registered against him over his remarks on Naushad, who died last week after inhaling poisonous gas inside a manhole while trying to save two labourers trapped in the manhole in Kozhikode. Natesan stirred up a controversy by stating that the UDF Government while awarding compensation to him was “favouring” one particular community, drawing sharp criticism from various quarters.
