Demand for CBI probe into Kanichukulangara `accident'

Staff Reporter

Check growth of illegal finance firms: CPI


  • Seeks crack down on anti-social elements
  • Meeting of Himalaya chitty depositors on Wednesday
  • Seeks probe into political links of the promoters

    KOCHI: The Communist Party of India (CPI) has called for a CBI investigation into the death of T. G. Ramesh, promoter of Everest chitty company, and two others in an alleged fake road accident at Kanichukulangara late last month. The police are probing into the accident.

    CPI district secretary Mundakkayam Sadashivan told a press conference here on Saturday that the Government should take steps to check the growth of `blade' finance companies and crack down on anti-social elements who were having a free run.

    P. Raju, CPI leader and former MLA, said the party was organising a meeting of Himalaya chitty depositors at Paravoor Town Hall at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

    He said that the Kanichukulangara probe had reached a dead end and that there was a possibility that the culprits might be able to hoodwink justice.

    He alleged that the promoters of the Himalaya group had political and police links. Mr. Raju added that his party feared that the culprits would evade the police.

    He also demanded that the Government investigate whether a so-called charitable organisation being run by the Himalaya group received aid of Rs.100 crores from the Union Government.

    The CPI plans to empanel lawyers to help depositors in the Himalaya group get back their money.

    The names of the panel members will be released soon. The party also plans to open an office as a help centre for the depositors.
