Anti-Constitution remark: Police to close case against ex-Kerala minister - Thiruvananthapuram News
by IANS | Updated Dec 04, 2022
Cherian while addressing a public meeting on July 3 this year said that "the Indian Constitution supports exploitation and looting of the people", and had sarcastically remarked that the words secularism and democracy were written here and there but they were exploiting the people.
He had to later resign following the controversial remarks.
The Kerala police are likely to close the case citing a lack of evidence and have decided to file a report in court.
The complainant in the case, Advocate Bijoy Noel, however, said that Kerala police were not willing to collect scientific evidence in the case.
It may be recalled that a case has been registered with non-bailable charges against Cheriyan but the police neither summoned the former minister nor was he questioned.
Cheriyan is an influential CPI-M leader in central Travancore and has been the district secretary of the party in the Alappuzha district. He is currently an MLA from the Chenganur constituency.
