BJP state chief Kummanam Rajasekharan has been booked for allegedly posting fake video on his Twitter handle against CPIM. The Kannur policeon Wednesday registered a case against him on various charges of promoting enmity between groups under IPC Section 153 (a). A petition was filed against Rajasekharan by SFI Kannur district president Muhammad Siraj.

Kummanam, through a video, had claimed that CPM activists were celebrating over the killing of an RSS activist Biju in Payyannur. He also claimed that CPM workers celebrated Biju’s death in at least 14 places in Kerala.

Siraj, in his complaint, alleged that the video was fake and Kummanam was trying to defame CPM, instigate RSS workers and create tension between the activists of both the parties.

Meanwhile, state police chief TP Senkumar has directed the Kannur district police chief to investigate and verify the authenticity of the video.

Kummanam said that he was willing to be arrested and go to jail. Meanwhile, BJP Thiruvananthapuram district president S Suresh was on Tuesday booked for hate speech against political rivals. He threatened CPM saying the peace in Kerala was RSS’ generosity adding that ‘we will go after the hands and heads of those who attack us’.

Suresh was addressing  a protest march in front of the Neyyattinkara DSP office against an attack on RSS workers at a village Anavoor in Thiruvananthapuram. He was charged by Neyyattinkara police under Section 295 (A) of IPC.
