Oommen Chandy behaves like Karunakaran: Kodiyeri

kodiyeriThiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy need not behave like the late Karunakaran who used muscle and police power to handle everyone, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said today.

“Oommen Chandy earlier had mentioned that the investigation was handed over to the DGP. But later we received information that the DGP handed over the investigation to Kannur DIG who intern handed it over to Kozhikode ADGP,” said Opposition Deputy leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan sated in a press conference held today.

“The Chief Minister today informed the Assembly that Additional chief secretary K Jayakumar has been appointed to probe the incident in which Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Radhakrishna Pillai opened fire on protesting SFI activists at Kozhikode Government Engineering college. This is totally unacceptable for the home ministry and the police are intrinsically linked,” he added.

According to him,” The minister is not willing to mention anything about the details of the report only because the report has statements against the government.” The opposition had demand for judicial enquiry in the Kozhikode firing which was rejected after which opposition walked out of assembly.
