Thiruvananthapuram ∙ Crime Branch FIR not charged in controversy in Mayor’s letter. Naming the accused as ‘unknown’, the crime branch also mentioned that someone had tampered with the mayor’s official letter pad. Although there is a strong allegation that some people in the CPM are behind the letter that was circulated, the crime branch is not pointing a finger at it. Although it is recorded in the FIR that the letter was artificially prepared and circulated on social media etc., it is also mysterious that the case was not filed under the sections of the IT Act.
A letter sent by Mayor Arya Rajendran to District Secretary Anavoor Nagappan asking for CPM list for temporary appointment of 295 people under the Corporation came out on 5th of this month. The mayor complained that the letter had been prepared and distributed on his letter pad. According to the report, the original of the letter was not found and a case should be registered and further investigation should be carried out. Accepting this, he ordered DGP Anilkanth to take up the case.
