THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan has been directed by the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court III here to appear before the court in person in connection with a contempt of court case.

 The case pertains to the remarks made by Pinarayi Vijayan at a public function in Kannur last month criticising an order of the JFMC to register a case against Health Minister P.K. Sreemathi and six others in connection with the alleged missing of files related to the Kiliroor sex case.

 Pinarayi Vijayan was directed by the court on Wednesday to appear in person on February 4 and give his explanation in the case.

 Advocate Neyyatinkara Nagaraj had filed the contempt of court suit against the CPM state secretary.

 The JFMC had directed the Cantonment police on December 10 to register a case against the Private Secretary and the Political Secretary to the Chief Minister, the Health Minister, sons of two Ministers in the State and Latha Nair, the prime accused in the Kiliroor case, in connection with the alleged missing of a files seeking CBI probe into the Kiliroor case from the Chief Minister’s office.  While addressing a public meeting in Kannur on December 13, Pinarayi had flayed the court decision. This had led to initiating contempt of court proceedings against him.
