UAPA slapped on Rajeeshtext_fields
Kozhikode: The Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) has been slapped on Rajeesh Kollankkadi, who was suspended from the service for his alleged links with Left wing extremist groups.
Rajeesh, a clerk at the Government Polytechnic College at West Hill in Kozhikode, was suspended from the service pending inquiry by the Director of Technical Education for his alleged links with the Maoists.
He had assisted the relatives of a Maoist, killed in an alleged encounter in Nilambur forest, in securing his body from the mortuary and negotiated with the police on behalf of human rights organisations.
The order said the Commissioner had asked him to take action against Rajeesh as ‘he was an activist of a Left radical group’ and that he breached the rules laid down for the State government employees and involved in activities that could attract a case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
