via Pioneer News Service | Kochi published on August 14, 2006

BJP has demanded a judicial probe into the custodial deaths in the State under the LDF rule. Party State president PS Sreedharan Pillai has also asked the State Government to release a white paper about the activities of the police force, in the last three months.

In a press meet, Pillai said that 14 persons have been killed under mysterious circumstances in the last three months and no other State would have the rare record like this one.

He alleged that the CPI(M) members in the police force were responsible for the incidents, as they were resorting to such actions under a belief that the party would protect them.

“CPI(M) should control their members in the party,” he said. Pillai added that the State Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan should resign owing moral responsibility over the incidents.

About the mysterious deaths that happened in the temple town of Guruvayoor, the BJP leader said that a judicial investigation should be conducted into these incidents. He said that the Government should ensure the security of the devotees who reach there.

“Chief Minister and the Cabinet Ministers are accusing the officials for all the mishaps, are not the Ministers a part of the administration,” he asked.
