Kottayam: Former MLA and Kerala Janapaksham (Secular) leader PC George has been absconding ever since the court rejected his anticipatory bail plea over his hate speech.

Ernakulam District Principal Sessions Court had rejected his anticipatory bail plea as the prosecution batted that George violated the bail condition. Following this, a team of police led by Thrikkakara ACP reached George’s residence at Erattupetta.

However, hours before the arrival of the police, George reportedly moved to another place to avoid arrest. Police then inspected his house premises and confirmed that he has fled the place. Some cops are camping at his residence. Reports said that George has moved to Thiruvananthapuram.

The police is quizzing his gunman Nainan. According to Nainan, P C George did not want him to accompany when he left his house on Saturday. The car came back an hour later.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that George fled in a Maruti car owned by his relative who is not traceable by police.

The officials had inspected George’s relative’s house the other day. The police also inspected the house of George’s brother but are clueless on his whereabouts.

Sources claim George will be absconding till he files the anticipatory plea before Kerala High Court on Monday. His objective is to avoid arrest.

Amid this, a section of netizens alleged that the administration is intentionally delaying George’s arrest.

George is known for his use of aggressive remarks, insensitive statements, obscene language and communal spin. He tasted electoral defeat during his one-man army pursuit in his political career and has been in limelight for legitimizing Hindutva spins targeting minorities.

Last month, George was arrested for his hate speech at Ananthapuri Hindu Maha Sammelan organized in Thiruvananthapuram. He was given bail under certain conditions. However, George reportedly made another hate speech against minority community at Saptaha Yajna event in Mahadeva Temple at Ernakulam’s Vennala. He was booked over that too.
