Kodiyeri used gold smuggler’s car during Jana Jagratha Yatra: IUML
Kozhikode: IUML State Secretary M. C. Mayin Haji alleged that CPM State Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan travelled in the private vehicle of an accused in a gold smuggling case when the Jana Jagratha Yatra reached Kozhikode. The vehicle was owned by Faisal Karat, who was arrested for smuggling 2000 kg gold.
Kodiyeri used the amenities arranged by a Hawala gang from Koduvalli. Local CPM leaders and Koduvalli MLA Karat Razak are acquainted with Faisal Karat. Kodiyeri should explain why he accepted the favour from him and also reveal the sponsor of the programme, Mayin Haji demanded.
Chief minister should order an investigation on this issue. The Hawala transactions in Koduvalli take place under police protection. Mayin Haji also alleged that the police have not filed any case against MLA Karat Razak who manhandled MSF workers in Koduvalli.
