Thiruvananthapuram: AKG Centre attack case that put Kerala Police in a sticky wicket has reached a crucial point. A youth congress worker, deemed to be the main accused in the case, has been nabbed in the case. The development has given the regime the opportunity to reply to the dig- ’Kittiyo?’ (whether the person involved is nabbed?), of the opposition.
The probe in the case nears three months, and since it was begun, the suspected involvement of Congress workers was under the scanner. The only lead the probe team had was the CCTV visuals of the attack. However, the visuals were not clear, and the probe team had to deploy the latest technology to examine them.
The pattern of the t-shirt worn by the accused and his Dio scooter in the visuals turned crucial for progress in the probe. The probe team got social media photos of the accused in the t-shirt, while the CCTV visual retrieved from Thiruvananthapuram’s Gowreesha Pattanam region confirmed the Dio scooter.
The officials also found that the accused, on reaching Gowreesha Pattanam, took a car. The investigation based on the car also led to the accused. The car is under the Crime Branch’s custody and the officials had searched the accused’s house and the lodge where he halted.
Meanwhile, the accused's mother alleged that CPM is intentionally framing his son. She claimed that her son is innocent.
