DGP report on Kozhikode firing is a sham: VS

achuthanandanKozhikode: Opposition leader VS Achuthanandhan stated that DGP Jacob Punnoose report on Kozhikode firing was a sham. The report favours the Oomen Chandy government said V S while talking to media persons after visiting SFI leaders in Kozhikode jail today.

The citizens of this state and the protestors shall discard the report. If the government tries to trap the students in false cases they would have to face strong opposition. If the government does not suspend ACP Radhakrishna Pillai at the earliest the second round of protests would begin soon, he added.

Director-General of Police (DGP) Jacob Punnoose had stated yesterday that the investigation report justifies the Kozhikode police firing. According to him the police was forced to open fire in order to bring the situation in control and to prevent any further violence. In a report handed over to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, DGP informed that the ACP had used his service revolver as per the rules. The protest in Kozhikode had created a situation that warranted police firing, the report said.
