Kannur MP K Sudhakaran of the Congress Wednesday tried to forcefully release two activists from police custody. They were arrested after they tried to run over a policemen who tried to stop them from ferrying illegally-mined sand. They have been booked on charges of attempt to murder.
Later, a local Youth Congress leader arrived at the police station and demanded release of the arrested. When the police did not budge, he threatened the station officer. At this stage, the police arrested him.
Hearing about this, Sudhakaran rushed to the police station and demanded the release of the arrested. Showering abuse on the station inspector in full glare of the media, Sudhakaran said the inspector would be made to sit at home in a week. The leader along with party workers left the station only after releasing the Youth Congress leader.
Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said IG Jose George would probe the matter. Asked why no case was registered against Sudhakaran on charges of disrupting the duty of police, Radhakrishnan said the MP had intervened in the issue only as people's representative. Sudhakaran, known as Congress muscle man in Kannur, had earlier forcibly released a supari gang from police custody on an election day.
