BJP leader K Surendran taken to Kannur jail

Kozhikode: BJP General Secretary K Surendran has been taken to Kannur jail from Kozhikode sub-jail.

He alleged that a fake case was registered against him. He will be produced before the magistrate at 11 am.

“Upon learning that I will get bail on the Sannidhanam case, police booked another case accusing me of attacking the Chittar station and injuring a police officer,” Surendran said.

The Kannur police had registered a case against Surendran for threatening a police officer during a protest march to the SP’s office there.

As a warrant was issued, Surendran was taken to Kannur from Kottarakkara Sub Jail. BJP workers got into a minor scuffle with the police officers outside the Kottarakara jail as Surendran was being escorted out.

He stayed at Kozhikode jail on Sunday.

“After the Sabarimala issue started, cases registered against chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan at the cantonment and museum police stations were withdrawn,” he alleged and wondered if the CM and Kodiyeri were cowards.

Pointing to the solar case, Surendran questioned why cases were not registered against Oommen Chandy and K C Venugopal despite rape complaint from a woman.

He was taken into preventive custody earlier at Nilakkal, a base camp for Sabarimala pilgrims, after he refused to go back despite a request from the police.

Surendran was produced before a local court at Ranni in Pathanamthitta and remanded in judicial custody for 14 days. Later he was granted conditional bail.

Subsequently, he was arrested in the case relating to violence at Sannidhanam when a 52-year-old woman, who had come for a ritual for her grandchild, was blocked and allegedly attacked.

A court in Pathanamitta had on Saturday denied bail to the BJP leader in the case over Sabarimala protests. The court denied bail saying that the case was related to Section 308 of the Indian Penal Code (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and also has conspiracy charges.

While denying him bail, the court, however, allowed Surendran to talk to his family members through phone in the presence of the jail superintendent.
