In a statement here today, Mr. Vijayan said the DGP appeared to have lost touch with reality when he claimed in Kochi on Sunday that the law and order situation in the State was fully under control. Terming the DGP's replies to mediapersons' queries in Kochi as `arrogant', he said the State was witnessing a rising tide of violence, murders and atrocities on women.
Mr. Vijayan accused the Congress of playing a leading role in undermining rule of law in the State and pointed out that the ones in the dock for having forged a document against a Minister belonged to the ruling party itself. The police, he said, was also turning into protectors of criminals as had happened in the Mattancherry sex racket case.
When top brass of the ruling party and other `dear ones' of the power centres seemed on the verge of being caught by the police in connection with the sex racket case, they began efforts to dilute the case.
The victim in the sex racket was being persecuted by the police even as they tried to cover up the whole affair. The condition of the victim of the Suryanelli sex racket case was no different. There were also allegations that a concerted bid was on to sabotage the Suryanelli-Abhaya cases, he pointed out.
The CPI(M) State secretary alleged that all cities in the State were in the grip of goonda gangs. Rowdy gangs were running amok, he added.
