Thiruvananthpuram: The police will investigate whether senior Kerala politician and former MLA P C George, who obtained bail after being arrested over his controversial speech at Ananthapuri Hindu Mahasabha ‘Mahasammelan', violated any bail conditions. He was granted bail under the conditions of not repeating any similar hate speeches or attempting to influence the witnesses in the case.
However, P C George had reacted to the media after obtaining the bail saying that he stands by his statement and that accusing him of spreading hatred is a politically motivated move.
The police arrested him on Sunday and charged non-bailable offences against him for his controversial remarks against Muslims but were not able to produce a prosecutor before the magistrate. Police had sought custody of P C George for 14 days. In the remand report, police opined that if the former MLA is let out on bail, then it is likely that he may threaten the witnesses.
The police will investigate whether he violated the bail condition of not repeating any similar hate speeches and may seek legal advice over this. The police have not yet received the bail order from the court. It is also hinted that the police may move High Court to cancel the bail.
