Malappuram/Ponnani: Police arrested two more persons in connection with a case of attacking SI K Naufal during the violence that erupted on hartal day by the BJP. Nedumbarath Arun (22) and Sunil Kumar (39) were arrested by Ponnani CI Sunny Chacko.
The father of Arun had died while he was in service. So Arun was eligible to get a direct appointment to the police force with a special order from the government. Since he was booked in the case, his chances to get the job in police looks bleak.
Sunil is a RSS karyavahak of Ponnani taluk. 6 persons have been arrested in the attack of SI Naufal and fracturing his elbow. A case was filed against 50 people who attacked police on hartal day. 7 police personnel were injured in stone-throwing.
The attackers who were absconding were nabbed with the help of cyber cell. Search for remaining persons have been strengthened through ‘Operation Window’ by collecting the photos of those who took part in the march. All those who spearheaded the violence are under cover.
Over 200 people were arrested in the district for carrying out violence on hartal day. Non-bailable case has been registered against 50 of the arrested. Investigation is progressing based on the visuals available of the violence and march.
