Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 28( BPNS)

Tiruvalla police have registered a case against ruling CPM leader and KottayaiL Branch secretary of the party, P.S. Sajimon for sexually abusing a party worker.

The woman in her complaint said that Sajimon lured her and took her to a secluded place and made her drink a juice laced with sedatives and abused her after she became unconscious. She complained that Sajimon along with another youth leader of the CPM, Nassar circulated her nude photographs on social media.

Police have also charged case against two councilors of Tiruvalla municipality who are also CPM leaders for having circulated the woman’s naked photo. She also charged that a lawyer was also involved in the circulation of her naked photos.

Sajimon was also involved in another sexual abuse case wherein he had impregnated a married woman and later tried to scuttle the DNA test report by using his political influence. The CPM had relegated him from the status of a local committee member and made him the branch secretary of the Kottayai branch.

M. Krishnanunni, social activist and writer from Kozhikode while speaking to BPNS said, “ The CPM has been advocating woman’s rights and gender equality and these are all farce. They are putting such abusers in key posts and party branch secretary is a key post for a ruling political party as he will have influence in local police station and will influence key decisions be taken by the police. The party knew that he was an abuser and had relegated him to local committee member. Why did they give me a post as branch secretary even after this. This means he is a person who is close to party leadership.”

CPM is red-faced after the party leader has been charged with a sexual offense case and the party district and state leaders were not available for comments.
