Cong leader booked for immoral traffic

Cong leader booked for immoral traffic


The police later registered a case under the Immoral Trafficking (Prevention) Act against the AICC member and the 33-year-old woman, identified as Jayalakshmi. They were released on bail on being produced before the First Class Judicial Magistrate court in Manjeri. Denying any sexual liaison, Unnithan told the magistrate that the woman was a Congress party worker and they had come to the district for party work. The medical examination done on the duo to ascertain sexual contact was found negative.

The police said the local people raided the house after neighbours complained that he had been frequenting the place with the woman for the past six months. Unnithan later claimed that he was on his way to Bangalore to meet his son who was a student there and offered a “lift” to the woman to Manjeri where she also had some work to do.  Unnithan who contested unsuccessfully against Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan in the last Assembly election from Thalassery has been a controversial figure in Congress politics. He was expelled from the party for his outburst against former PCC chief K Muralidharan and was later taken back in 2004.  He began his film career as a “villain” in the film “The Tiger.”
Kerala PCC chief Ramesh Chennithala said appropriate action would be initiated against Unnithan while the Mahila Congress demanded his expulsion.
