Palakkad: The appointment of chairman of the Palakkad child welfare committee has stirred a row. The appointment of SFI activist N Rajesh as child welfare chairman triggered a spat as it was alleged that it was done to sabotage the cases that was backed by the CPM.
Rajesh had represented as many as 25 POCSO cases for the accused and also in the mysterious death of 2 minor siblings in Walayar for the accused. Legal experts ask whether justice will be delivered for children if he is appointed chairman of child welfare committee.
The present special public prosecutor in POCSO cases had also worked with N Rajesh as junior for a very long time. There are allegations that this was to sabotage the POCSO cases in Palakkad in which CPM workers were made accused. However, Rajesh dismissed these allegations.
