Nothing unusual in police probe against Aswathy Jwala, says Kadakampally
Thiruvananthapuram: Minister for Tourism and Devaswom Kadakampally Surendran said Sunday that there is nothing unusual in police registering a case on a complaint that Aswathy Jwala collected funds in the name of Latvian native Liga Skromane who died in mysterious circumstances.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Kadakampally said that the job of the police is to conduct a probe after they receive a complaint.
“They are doing their job. How can it be said that it is wrong?I had called Aswathy Jwala to enquire about the matter. She said that the matters mentioned in the complaint are not true. I consoled Aswathy saying not to feel hurt or afraid if she is sure that she has not done any wrong. Aswathy has a wrong notion that the police are deliberately trying to torment her. When Aswathy came to meet me two days back, she talked about her criticism of the chief minister and the government over Liga's death. She told me that it was a mistake on her part and she is regrets it," Kadakampally said.
Jwala said that the chief minister denied permission to her to meet him. If that is the case, she could have got a chance to meet the chief minister after speaking to me or anybody else she knows. It is true that people with complaints were not able to meet the chief minister on the day Aswathy Jwala tried to meet him, as the chief minister was very bus on that day. Other than this, the chief minister did not deliberately deny permission to her to meet him. Aswathy Jwala is blaming the government unnecessarily. The tourism department has not committed any lapses over Liga’s missing. All the details of the probe cannot be shared with Liga's sister. However, attempts were made to deliberately mislead Liga’s sister saying that the details of the probe are not being shared because the effective probe is not taking place,” Kadakampally added.
