Posters against Kanam: Two AIYF leaders in custody
Alappuzha: Two AIYF leaders were taken into police custody for allegedly pasting posters against CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran. AIYF Alappuzha district committee member Jayesh and another member Shiju were taken into custody. Among the duo, arrest of Jayesh was recorded earlier and Shiju’s arrest will be registered soon.
At the same time, police have been searching for Krishnakumar, president of Kisan Sabha who rode the vehicle in which the AIYF activists arrived to paste the poster.
Police reported that the trio conspired to paste the posters against Kanam.
A team of police led by Alappuzha DySP is probing the case. The trio will be booked under criminal conspiracy and defamation. Police have registered FIR against them.
Posters triggering hate speech against Kanam Rajendran were displayed on three spots including the wall of CPI office in Alappuzha town. It is reported that CPI will take disciplinary action against the three people involved in the crime.
Earlier, CPI argued that the posters against Kanam Rajendran was a part of media conspiracy. Visuals broadcasted by Mathrubhumi News proved that the statement is wrong. Following this, police took action to arrest the AIYF leaders.
