Aroor (Alappuzha): A non-bailable case was charged against UDF candidate in Aroor Shanimol Usman. Aroor police charged the case based on a complaint filed by PWD engineer for blocking the construction of Eramalloor-Ezhupunna road.
The complaint was lodged by PWD Assistant Executive Engineer to Alappuzha SP. The case was handed over to Aroor police for further investigation. The probe has begun based on this. The non-bailable offence was charged against Shanimol for interfering in the works of the officials.
According to the complaint, Shanimol Usman and about 50 Congress workers blocked the maintenance works of the road on September 27 at 11 pm. They prevented the officials from continuing the work, as per the complaint.
Meanwhile, Congress leader A. A. Shukkoor said that Shanimol Usman only blocked the PWD works that violated election code of conduct and the case was charged against her due to political vendetta.
However, PWD officials said that construction was started before the election was declared and this was stopped by Shanimol and party workers.
