CPI(M) denies cadres involvement in MLA daughter's abduction
Bangalore | Sunday, Feb 8 2009 IST
The Communist Party of India (Marxist) today denied involvement of its cadres, including DYFI or CITU, in the abduction of the Kerala MLA's daughter in Mangalore on Friday.
Dakshina Kannada CPI(M) Secretary B Madhava today said reports that termed the five arrested across the border in Kerala as belonging to the Left party was incorrect and it was indeed the activists of a pro-Hindu organisation. In a press release issued through the State office, Mr Madhava said C K Kunhnambu CPI(M) MLA, representing Manjeshwar constituency, whose daughter was allegedly abducted by a group of persons, had no Left party connection and at least four of the arrested were members of 'Sangh Pariwar'. None of the arrested belonged to DYFI, CITU or CPI(M), he added.
He said the bus conductor and driver, who were among the arrested, were not members of CPI(M)-affiliated unions. ''The City police has not arrested all of those who were involved in the abduction case. The girl identified that she had been taken beyond Padil over-bridge and to a village called Kannur in Mangalore taluk,'' he said. He alleged that the MLA's daughter and the boy student belonging to another community were accosted by Bhajrang Dal activists, including women and both were roughed up. Karnataka State Secretariat member VJK Nair condemned the act by 'pariwar' activists and said the BJP Government had not taken prompt measures.
