Thiruvananthapuram: Police denied the claims of CPM and stated that former DCP Chaitra Teresa John raided the CPM district committee office here following all norms. The force also explained that a raid report was submitted at the judicial magistrate court. General Diary (GD) entry was also noted at the police station.
Chaitra Teresa John and team raided the CPM district committee office after receiving an information that the accused in stoning of Medical Collage police station were hiding in there. Soon after the raid, she was removed from additional charge of Thiruvananthapuram DCP. The incident made headlines only after she was removed from additional responsibility.
However, CPM district committee alleged that the raid was to attract media attention and it was in violation of norms. Later, CPM district secretary Aanavoor Nagappan filed a complaint to take legal action against Chaitra Teresa John.
