    Let CM give evidence if we are Maoists: Alan and Thaha

    Let CM give evidence if we are Maoists: Alan and Thaha

    Kochi: Alan Shuaib and Thaha Fasal, two DYFI activists, who were arrested under UAPA charges for alleged Maoist links, challenged Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to give evidence to prove his allegation that they wer Maoists.

    "If CM says that we are Maoists, produce evidence to prove whom we killed and where we planted bombs," the youths said while they were brought here to appear in NIA Court.

    "We are not Maoists. If CM alleges we are Maoists, bring evidence. We had worked as booth agents for CPM in the last elections too," they said while coming out of the court.

    Both of them were remanded till 14 February and were shifted to high security prison in Thrissur. The court postponed to Friday a plea submitted by NIA to get them in custody for interrogation. The lawyers of the both opposed the custody application of NIA.

    NIA requested custody of the two for seven days from 20 January.

    The youths, who were in Kozhikode Jail, were brought to Kochi as the NIA court issued a production warrant. Thaha Fasal pleaded to allow consulting a dentist. NIA responded that the treatment should be given only in the presence of the police.  The court instructed to ensure treatment in Thrissur Medical College.

    On 18 December, NIA took up the case registered earlier by Pantheerankavu Police. They were arrested by the police in the wee hours of 1st November 2019.
