Kozhikode: KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran demanded that a special judge be appointed by the High Court to investigate into guns and cartridges that went missing from the possession of Kerala police.
The Congress leader said that as DGP Loknath Behera is a former National Investigation Agency (NIA) officer, he may be able to interfere in the NIA investigation.
Seeking Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to break his silence regarding the matter, Mullappally Ramachandran added that people of Kerala were interested in knowing the undercurrents between the CM and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The CM is afraid of the centre. He must not become a puppet in the hands of the PM. I have already spoken about the unholy alliance between the DGP and Narendra Modi. The recent revelations are justifying them,” said Mullappally Ramachandran.
Alleging that the CM was protecting the DGP, Mullappally Ramachandran said that the prevailing situation was such that it is not clear if Pinarayi Vijayan or Loknath Behera is the state Home Minister.
The Congress leader demanded that the CM must be ready to ask those who registered Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) against two students without any reason, to book those responsible for the missing guns and cartridges under the same act.
Mullappally Ramachandran added that Congress will organise strong protests over the issue after February 16.
