CBI arrested innocent men over Periya double murder case: CPM district secretary
Kasaragod: CPM Kasaragod district secretary MV Balakrishnan has dismissed the allegation against CPM over the Periya double murder case. He said that CBI booked innocent people over the murder charges. He also declared that all of the accused are not CPM workers.
“Not all of them are CPM men. Most of them have no idea about the murder. The local people and party know this truth,” said the CPM district secretary.
"The party had welcomed any investigation over the murder. When the probe was carried out, CPM men were booked and arrested. Let the officials continue the arrests. But we won’t be mute spectators anymore,” asserted MV Balakrishnan.
“CPM had obtained a huge number of votes in the last assembly elections, even in Pullur-Periya panchayat," he added.
If CPM plotted the murder, the people would have turned against us. Even Congress followers favoured us in the polls. So, there is no doubt that the CBI arrest is a political game. We are not afraid of it, said the CPM district secretary.
At the same time, he alleged that CBI booked the people as directed by Congress. The CPM leader also criticised that UDF and BJP have been enjoying the CBI move.
