Thiruvananthapuram: An SFI leader who has been accused in the case of beating up traffic police officers on road in Thiruvananthapuram has appeared at a public function along with ministers. The visuals of the function held at University college show the key accused Nazeem attending the function attended by ministers AK Balan and KT Jaleel. There are strong allegations that higher political intervention is safeguarding the accused.
On December 12, a group including Nazeem, had beaten up the traffic police officers in duty at Palayam for questioning the violation of traffic signal. Four of the six accused had surrendered at police station.
According to police, two accused, including key Thiruvananthapuram University College SFI Union Secretary Nazeem are still absconding.
However, visuals of Nazeem attending the function have been out. It is being alleged that the police, who provided security to the ministers, didn’t arrest him because of political interference.
Also, it is to be noted that the function took place literally meters away from the Cantonment police station where the case has been registered.
