DYFI's moral policing: K T Sindhu to move court
Vadakara: K T Sindhu, former president of the Payyoli panchayat, is set to move court over the moral policing incident involving DYFI activists in Vadakara. Sindhu told Mathrubhumi News that she took the decision as she had no faith in the police investigation.
Sindhu accused the police of adopting a lackadaisical approach towards the issue. "Women value their dignity most. The insult meted out to me by the police was unbearable. I would strive to get justice at any cost," she said.
The police have taken into custody Nikhil (29) of Edakkudi in connection with the incident. He is a DYFI worker. There are around 20 accused in the case.
K T Sindhu and Thiruvalloor Murali, Thodannur block panchayat president, were locked in the Swalcos office in Vadakara by a group of persons last Friday. Subsequently, the police took the duo into custody and kept them at the police station for hours, even in the absence of any petition or case, which caused tension on the station premises. The police had to give consent for a medical examination of Murali and Sindhu, who demanded for the same to prove their innocence.
The Congress and the Youth Congress alleged that it was a conspiracy plotted by the Vadakara police and the DYFI to trap Murali, who had staged a hunger strike against the police.
