Thiruvananthapuram: Rape accused Congress MLA Eldhose Kunnapillil appeared before the Crime Branch on Saturday morning. Granting anticipatory bail to the MLA, the Additional Special Court had asked him to appear before the Crime Branch on Saturday. The Crime Branch may register his arrest. Kunnapillil has to appear before the Crime Branch till November 3 on demand.

Meanwhile, the police registered a fresh case against the MLA for allegedly defaming the complainant.

Kunnapillil had submitted evidence establishing his relationship with the complainant in the court. Other evidences that he produced in the court include details of the cases that the complainant filed against others.

The court pointed out former judgements by the Supreme Court, including the one of ex-Union minister P Chidambaram, in anticipatory bail pleas.

The court said the complainant had knowledge that the MLA is married. She also knew that it was legally impossible to marry him. The woman is highly educated and so cannot be considered as being ignorant of law, the court said.

The woman had also accused the MLA of attempt to murder. Kunnapillil had also been charged with assault as she accused him of abducting and manhandling her.
