MLA facing rape charges removed from party posts
Kerala Congress MLA M Vincent, arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a 51-year-old woman, was on Sunday removed from all official party positions.

However, Vincent, who was the secretary of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), will remain a party member.

“The party has decided to remove him from official positions till he is cleared of the charges,” KPCC president M M Hassan said.

Hassan, however, reiterated that Vincent will not step down as MLA till the charges against him are proved.

The 49-year-old MLA from Kovalam in Thiruvananthapuram was arrested on Saturday on charges of rape, stalking and abetting suicide.
