MM Mani says party not in defensive mode in custodial death case
Thodupuzha: Minister M. M. Mani said that he supported Idukki SP when he felt that the opposition and the media are targeting him in connection with the Peerumedu custodial death case. He added that the statement of the district leadership to stop acting against the Idukki SP might be based on the information they received.
The government’s policy is not to make every official accused in the case. If the SP is guilty, action will be taken against him also, the minister told Mathrubhumi News. He further said Congress and Police joined hands in this case and the locals also manhandled Rajkumar.
The minister also rejected the allegations that the party is in the defensive mode in connection with the incident. Even if the opposition took stand against the SP in the assembly, nothing will happen, he said in a ridiculing tone.
He further said that the opposition members who raise allegations are involved in more serious crimes. He challenged the media to publish his exact words and that nothing will affect him.
