Crime Branch to probe land-grab case against Salim Raj

Thiruvananthapuram: Salim Raj, former gunman of chief minister Oommen Chandy, will now face a Crime Branch probe in a land grab case registered at Thrikkakara in Ernakulam district.

DGP Balasubramanian ordered the Crime Branch probe into the case based on a report by ADGP A Hemachandran. An officer with not less than an SP rank will probe the case.

There were reports that the Kochi DCP tried tried to sabotage the case.

Meanwhile, the Kalamassery police on Friday registered a case against A K Nasser, 48, a resident of Pathadippalam in Kochi, who accused CM's former gunman Salim Raj of aiding to grab his land in Kochi. The police said that the documents produced by Nasser were fake.

Nasser had earlier alleged that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had threatened him. Nasser had said that Salim Raj was using his influence and clout to assist his brother-in-law Abdul Majeed to deprive them of their ancestral property of 1.16 acres estimated at Rs.35 crore at Pathadippalam in Thrikkakkara North Village in Ernakulam district.

"Chief Minister Oommen Chandy sided with his ex-gunman and threatened me that my land will be confiscated by the government as I had informed opposition leader V.S. Achuthanandan about my issue," he had said.
