Monson’s Chembola is fake and was made in 1965, says historian Sasibhooshan
Kochi: Historian MG Sasibhooshan informed that he has evidence to prove that the Sabarimala chembola seized from the alleged scammer Monson Mavunkal is fake. The chembola has been made to raise unnecessary claims over Sabarimala and he knows for whom it was created, said Sasibhooshan to Mathrubhumi news.
There is no doubt that the chembola is fake. It was presented as evidence in court in relation to a case in 1965-66. Sasibhooshan said that he will hand over the evidence to the investigating agencies.
The year and month based on the Malayalam calendar was inscribed on the Chembola. But the exact date has not been given.
Reference over ‘anantharayan panam’, a type of old coin, has been given in the chembola, which is claimed to be made in the 17th century, But the ‘anantharayan panam’ did not exist in the same century. The chembola was also claimed to be presented by the Pandalam dynasty. However, the Pandalam dynasty was known by another name then.
The chembola was made in 1964 or 1965 by an expert. Sasibhooshan asserted that he knows from where it was prepared and how much money was given to make it.
Hiostorian Raghava Varier who stated that he had read the chembola has not revealed anything about the authenticity of it. He was trying to please someone, slammed Sasibhooshan.
