Thiruvananthapuram |More police personnel were deployed as part of security as there were reports that Radhakrishnan, a life convict for murdering his wife and accused in about 60 cases, would try to slip away, Chennithala said, adding if anything like that had happened, state police would have been blamed for that. It was the duty of state police to ensure proper security if an accused is taken to another state, he said.

Government has no intention to threaten or infringe into the autonomous functioning of the Commission, he said. The Home Minister also flayed the opposition’s stand of questioning the ruling of the Speaker. He also termed as very unfortunate the attempt of the opposition to tarnish the image of Chandy based on statements of a criminal like Radhakrishnan.

Kerala society is watching all these developments, Chennithala said referring to high drama witnessed by the state on December 10 night when police team and Radhakrishnan went to Coimbatre and failed to recover the purported video. Lashing out at the government, Achuthanandan alleged thatthe opposition tried to take up the bribe issue in Solar andBar scams and government was not ready to hear their voice.

Talking to reporters, Achuthanandan also alleged that police failed the attempt of the commission to recover the video clippings. On the Speaker’s refusal to admit notice for a debate, he said Speaker N Sakathan is conducting the House as a Congress secretary.
