Though BJP leader K Surendran has been granted bail in the case where he allegedly abused top police officers, he won't be released because there is one more case pending against him.
Kannur: The Kannur judicial magistrate court has granted bail to BJP leader K Surendran in connection with the case where he allegedly abused some top police officers.
Kerala BJP’s general secretary Surendran allegedly abused the deputy superintendent of police (DySP) PP Sadanandan and another police officer Prince Abraham in connection with the Fasal murder case in Kannur.
The police produced Surendran before the magistrate in Kannur as the court had issued a summons against him. He was taken to Kannur from Kottarakkara sub-jail.
Earlier, the BJP state unit chief PS Sreedharan Pillai said that the police were trying to register false cases against Surendran.
Pillai said, "We stand against the atheist people, and we will always be with the devotees. For 50 years, the communist party is trying to destroy the devotees’ sentiments and we won't allow that cruel act. Pinarayi Vijayan, who allowed criminals in the police force to rule the roost, cannot wash his hands of the heinous crime committed on an Ayyappa devotee.”
Surendran is currently remanded in the case where he allegedly blocked a 52-year-old woman in Sabarimala and he would be taken to Kottarakkara on Monday.
He is facing charges of conspiracy to murder the woman, who entered the Sabarimala temple. The Ranni court denied bail to him in this case. The police remanded Surendran to judicial custody.
"Even that particular woman in question hasn't filed a complaint against Surendran, then why wouldn't the court understand the matter and allow him to come out of jail?," questioned Rupesh Chirakkal, an Ayyappa devotee.
Amidst chants of ‘Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa’, the BJP leaders at various places in Kerala staged protests against the arrest of K Surendran.
