New Delhi: Kerala Police has registered a case against Kerala Congress (B) leader R Balakrishna Pillai for his alleged derogatory remarks against Muslim and Christian communities. The superintendent of police at Kottarakkara will take further action based on the report. Punalur DySP A. Shanavas submitted the preliminary inquiry report to Kollam rural SP Ajeetha Beegum which has been forwarded to the police headquarters.
“A subsequent report from the headquarters may be received on Friday after which further action will be taken. The police have already secured legal opinion on this,” Ms Ajeetha Beegum told to media. The police have already collected evidence, including the recordings of the controversial speech.
Mr. Pillai had allegedly made derogatory comments against Muslim and Christian communities. He justified the speech saying that in community meetings, there would be matters that are not discussed outside. “I spoke inside the four walls of the NSS karayogam and not in public. There is a conspiracy behind raising a controversy over my speech there,” Mr. Pillai had said.
