Himalaya office raided

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: The police on Saturday raided the offices of the Himalaya group of companies based at Cherai as part of the investigation into the death of T. G. Ramesh, promoter of the Everest chitty company and two others in a road accident at Kanichukulangara late last month.

The police said that they collected crucial information regarding the involvement of the owners of the Himalaya group in the case. The investigating team also found three bullets from the office during the raid. The bullets were handed over to the Munambam police.

CPI demands CBI probe

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 illegal finance firms 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. next 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.
