The Kerala High court on Wednesday came down heavily against the police for the political clashes in Thalassery and said that the police was partial in the violent fights between the CPI(M) and the RSS-BJP combine .The court asked the Director General of Police to submit all facts related to the clashes.

The court also said that if the explanation of the DG was not satisfactory all the cases would be given to the CBI for further investigation. This observation from the court is a major embarrassment to the State Government and the police under Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

The court directed the DGP to produce the facts in the case before May 21. The court has given this observation while considering the bail plea of the three accused in the Sudhir Kumar murder in Thalassery. The court has come down heavily against the State Government for the second time after it has assumed office.

Justice R Basant had made this observation while hearing the case. The judge also said that a special investigation team comprising officers with impeccable background should be constituted for considering the political cases in Kannur. The Judge also observed that for a time bound settlement of cases a special court should be set up.

Earlier the court had come down heavily against the Government while taking the plea in the Fasal murder case. The court has then observed that if necessary central forces should be deployed in Kannur area.

State Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, while speaking to mediapersons at Coimbatore where he is attending the CPI(M) party Congress, said the government would submit all details called upon by the court.
