Alappuzha: The court has instructed to file cases against Vellappally Natesan, his assistant KL Ashokan and Thushar Vellappally regarding the death of SNDP Kanichukulangara union secretary KK Maheshan.
The instruction was made by Alappuzha Judicial Court based on a complaint filed by Maheshan’s wife Usha Devi.
KK Maheshan was found hanging inside the Kanichukulangara union office on June 20. Following this, Maheshan’s family turned against Vellappally Natesan, his son Thushar Vellappally and their accomplice Ashokan. The family alleged that police were not willing to file an abetment of suicide case against the accused. However, Vellappally Natesan had dismissed all the allegations.
The state government employed a special investigation team to probe the case after a lot of controversy. However, the family informed the government that this investigation was not satisfactory. It was following this that Maheshan’s family filed a petition in the Alappuzha Judicial Magistrate Court.
Based on this petition, the court instructed that the case should be filed with Vellappally Natesan, KL Ashokan and Thushar Vellappally as the first, second and third accused.
Court has instructed the Mararikulam police to investigate the case after registering an FIR. Currently, the Mararikulam police have only filed an unnatural death case in connection with the incident.
