THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State president P.K. Krishnadas alleged here on Saturday that the government had dissolved the special squad investigating terrorism-related cases to aid the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Addressing a press conference, the State president said 26 policemen of the squad had been assigned other work to prevent them from unearthing evidence against PDP leader Abdul Nasir Maudany.

The government’s claim that their services were needed for election-related work was not true. The policemen during the investigations could have been spared, as services of enough policemen could be obtained from elsewhere.

Alleging anti-national activities by Mr.Maudany, the BJP leader demanded his arrest in the wake of fresh evidence against him.
