Even as the Government is saying that it does not want to launch a special probe into the allegedly suspicious affairs at the Christian meditation facility, Divine Retreat Centre, in Muringoor, Chalakkudi in Thrissur, State unit of the BJP has demanded immediate closure of the centre.

It said that the alleged atrocities over the past many years at centre that had come to light following the police inquiry, its closure was necessary.

State BJP president PK Krishnadas told newsmen here on Wednesday that the police enquiries into the excesses at the centre had revealed the death of 974 people either due to forcible drug administration or sexual harassment, while 34 dead bodies were found in the nearby railway track during the last six years.

He said that the incidents reported to have taken place at the Divine Retreat Centre were heinous. These could be described as even more shocking than the murders of children and women at Nithari.

He alleged that there were ‘underworld’ elements responsible for the tragedy and they must be brought to book.

Alleging that the ruling LDF and previous UDF Governments had been extending full support to the activities at the centre, Krishnadas said that the police enquiry, instituted after a court order in June last year, had been either “delayed or frozen under directions from the Home Ministry”.

Krishnadas said that CPI(M) State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan had lauded “sacred and pious services” of the centre during a visit there and even had flayed the police for carrying out a raid there.

Pinarayi had even criticised the court for ordering the probe into the affairs of the centre, Krishnadas alleged.

“This clearly indicated that both the fronts in Kerala can go to any extent to protect the vote bank by joining hands with perpetrators of serious crimes,” he said.

He alleged that the ruling CPI(M) was trying to scuttle the probe into the Divine centre activities. “In that case, it should clarify as to why it was vehemently opposed to the Siddhi Vinayaka Yajnam being held at Kannur”, he said.

The BJP would expose the “veiled face” of the Left party during the ongoing Janayatra led by him, he said.

The yatra would cover 126 Assembly constituencies before it will conclude on May 17 in Thiruvananthapuram where BJP president Rajnath Singh was scheduled to address a rally.
