BJP wants NIA probe into terror cases

via PNS | Kannur published on December 14, 2009

The Kerala BJP on Monday demanded a probe by a Central agency, preferably the National Investigation Agency, into the terror cases in the State as it saw a conspiracy to scuttle such inquiries. State BJP president PK Krishnadas said that the arrest of Sufiya, wife of Abdul Nasser Madani, was being delayed as a result of a political conspiracy.

Krishnadas told newsmen in Kannur on Monday that both the CPI(M) and the Congress were responsible for undermining the investigations into the terror cases, including those of the burning of a Tamil Nadu State bus at Kalamassery off Kochi in which Sufiya Madani was tenth accused.

He said there were clinching evidences with the police against South India’s LeT chief Thadiyantavide Nazeer and Sufiya in the bus-burning but the former UDF regime and the present LDF Government had caused serious lapses which affected the probe. While the former UDF government tried to cover up the case, the present LDF regime had frozen it, he said, adding there was conspiracy behind this.

The BJP leader said that the police of the LDF Government had declared Sufiya tenth accused in the Kalamassery case hastily in order to avoid action against her by the Karnataka Police which had gathered convincing evidences against Nazeer and Sufiya. This plan was hatched by none other than Tomin J Thachankery, Inspector General of Police (Kannur region), who was known to be close to the official leadership of the CPI(M).

Referring to State CPI(M) secretary Pinarayi Vijayan’s allegation that the former UDF government had torpedoed the case of attempt to assassinate former chief minister EK Nayanar to save a relative of Minister of State for Railway E Ahamed, Krishnadas said the CPI(M) leader owed an explanation as to why the subsequent LDF Government had not acted against the Muslim League leader’s relative. He also alleged that the CPI(M) had covered up Nazeer’s involvement in the case of the murder of Vinod in Kannur.

Krishnadas demanded a probe to ascertain whether monetary interests were involved in the CPI(M)-PDP alliance during the last Lok Sabha elections. Human rights activists and legal experts such as VR Krishna Iyer, who had come to the support of the PDP chairman when he was in jail, should also make their stand clear, he said. He added that the BJP would organize protests demanding that all terror-related cases be probed by the NIA.
