To a related question, Pinarayi replied the state had witnessed 14 political killings since the LDF came to power. In all, 13 cases have been registered in the said incidents. In seven cases, chargesheets have been filed, and in six, probe is in progress. In two murders, the main accused are yet to be nabbed. 


To another question, the Chief Minister replied six persons were killed in goonda attacks during this period. In all, 44 cases have been registered in connection with goonda attacks and 198 persons arrested. Two cases have been registered in connection with ‘quotation gangs’ and 22 arrests made, he said.
