Pathanamthitta: A complaint has been lodged against a CITU leader for allegedly threatening a corporation employee at his office. The accused has been identified as former councillor and CITU fishermen’s union district secretary Zakir Alankarathil.

Reportedly, Zakir threatened the employee for having stopped the illegal sale of fish in the area. The video of the incident has surfaced on social media.

The employees of the health department last Friday had seized two vehicles that carried out illegal fish sale. Although there was political pressure to release the vehicles, the employees decided to release only the fish and retained the vehicles.

However, the traders stood firm on their stance and demanded the release of the vehicles. Following which, Zakir Alankarathil arrived at the office last Saturday and threatened the employees.

As seen in the video, Zakir yelled at health department junior superintendent Deepu and threatened to chop off his hand if they failed to release the vehicles.

Meanwhile, there are allegations that the police delayed registering a case. Although a complaint was lodged on Saturday, the case was registered only on Tuesday.

However, Zakir Alankarathi rejected the allegations and claimed them to be baseless.
