Ministry of External affairs sabotaging a sensational Murder case

via HK published on February 15, 2007

Kochi:  Ministry of External Affairs headed by E.Ahammed  is reluctant to extradite main witnesses of Chekanoor Maulavi murder case. CBI court strongly criticised Central Government for it’s negligence on this controversial case. CBI filed an affidavit stating its helplessness in extraditing key witnesses to India without proper cooperation from the Ministry of External Affairs 


A total of 9 Muslim fundamentalists are so far accused for abducting Muslim reformist leader Chekanoor Maulavi on July 1993 from his home, and one of the influential Muslim leader Kanthapuram Aboobacker is also one among the accussed.


 Court has recorded statements from 25 witnesses in which 10 of them have changed their stand favourable to the accused as seen previously in the notorious icecream parlour case. CBI believes that 5 key witnesses Kakkad Aliyar, Dr. Adhul Jalil, Faisal and Manas could give valuable information regarding the conspiracy. Four of them now live in Saudi Arabia and one person resides in Dubai. CBI was optimistic about the extraditions, but  E Ahmad’s presence in Ministry of Affairs sabotaged all efforts of CBI.  


Finally CBI has asked for three more month’s time. It’s widely alleged that highly influential persons’ involvement in this case is the main hindrance for investigation.


Court will consider this case again on 22nd of this month.
