Adimali: Idukki District Police Chief has received an anonymous letter alleging that Sanakan, brother of minister MM Mani was killed in a road accident.
The person who wrote the letter demanded a probe into Sanakan’s death. The District Police Chief has asked Munnar DySP to investigate the matter and submit a report on it.
Kunchithanni native MM Sanakan (56) breathed his last in Kottayam medical college hospital on October 9. A group of natives found him in a weak state beside the road on October 7 early morning at Kuthupara. Two days before the incident, Sanakan had gone missing after he went to Kunchithanni with his wife.
According to the anonymous letter, Sanakan was hit by a vehicle on October 7. There were three people in the vehicle including a woman. They had no idea that the injured was the minister’s brother. He was taken to Adimali taluk hospital in the same vehicle. But later it was informed that he is dead.
The anonymous one who wrote the letter has claimed that Sanakan was killed in the accident.
Lambodharan, another brother of the minister revealed the details in the letter. Police have not taken any action to investigate the death even after receiving the letter.
Police had found that the vehicle mentioned in the letter belongs to Murikkassery native. But he was not interrogated yet. Lambodharan alleged that police have not investigated whether Sanakan was taken to hospital on October 7 or not.
"Police took Sanakan in an autorickshaw and not enquired after admitting him there. The hospital authority neglected him for 8 hours," Lambodharan said, alleging that Sanakan’s death was due to medical negligence.
