The Ernakulam Town North police have registered a case against People’s Democratic Party leader Abdul Nasir Maudany on the charge of planning the murder of Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram director P. Parameswaran and Father Alavi.
The case was registered on Wednesday following an order by the District Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Court on a petition by T.G. Mohandas, former general secretary of the kendram.
Maudany, an accused in the 2008 Bangalore blasts case, allegedly hatched plans to murder Mr. Parameswaran and Father Alavi from his house at Kaloor here. Mr. Mohandas said in his petition that a statement accusing Maudany of the crime had been made in 1998 by a person named T.K. Muhammad before A.V. George, then Circle Inspector of the Kozhikode Town police. According to the statement, T.K. Muhammad told the police that Maudany had tried many times to get the two killed between 1996 and 1998. Maudany allegedly offered PDP member Muhammad Ashraf Rs.5,000 each for the killings. Ashraf allegedly told T.K. Muhammad that Maudany had promised to send him to Pakistan.
