Nayanar ministry helped save Kunhalikutty

Giving a severe blow to the CPM and exposing the moral pretensions of important persons in the former Nayanar ministry, former Director-General of Prosecutions (DGP) Kallada Sukumaran has come out with the revelation that the Nayanar ministry had intervened to exclude IUML leader and former Minister P K Kunhalikutty from the infamous ice cream parlour sex racket case. The former DGP said based on the police records and other significant evidence collected at the initial stages of the investigation into the case he had given the legal advice to the Government recommending to include Kunhalikutty as an accused. The 15-page report he submitted to the Government had contained all relevant details which incriminated Kunhalikutty.

But immediately after the filing of report, the then Chief Minister's political secretary P Sasi talked to me over phone and asked me why I failed to seek the opinion of the Government before giving the legal advice

He said

several PILs were filed and the fact that cases were being conducted even at the Supreme Court by persons such as social activist K Ajitha, Kunhalikutty was left out. Meanwhile, the important evidence gathered during the initial stages of the investigation either got destroyed or lost
