Subair’s death: PFI seeks probe into Surendran’s role

April 18, 2022 09:04 pm | Updated 09:04 pm IST - KOCHI

The Popular Front of India (PFI) has demanded an inquiry into the alleged role of K. Surendran, State president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), in the conspiracy related to the murder of PFI worker A. Subair at Elappully in Palakkad.

The State leadership of the front on Monday accused Mr. Surendran of having participated in a “secret meeting” of BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leaders two days before the death of Subair. The ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI(M)] had raised such an allegation against the BJP State president, said A. Abdul Sathar, State general secretary of PFI.

Mr. Sathar alleged that a similar meeting attended by Valsan Thillankeri, leader of Hindu Aikya Vedi, was held before the murder of PFI leader Shaan in Alappuzha. The police had failed to act against Mr. Surendran, who had challenged the government to probe the allegations, he said.

The PFI has demanded an impartial probe into the death of Subair while claiming that it had no role in the murder of RSS worker Sreenivasan a day after Subair’s murder.
