IDUKKI: Power Minister M M Mani his typical sardonic style has commented that Rajkumar, who died in Peerumedu police custody recently, was a troublemaker. “Not only the police but Congress workers were also responsible for his death. The financial fraud was committed jointly by Rajkumar and Congress workers. It should be inquired from whose car he was arrested. And, the police used the opportunity to earn a bad name for the government. The mystery behind the death should be investigated thoroughly,” Mani said.

There were early reports that top officers had a role in the death of Rajkumar. The accused was kept in illegal custody for four days with the knowledge of Idukki SP and DySP. Idukki DySP had overlooked the special branch report that the accused was physically weak.

The report was given on June 13 and 14 by district special branch that came under Idukki DySP. Idukki Kolahalamedu native Rajkumar, who was in remand in Peerumedu jail in Idukki Thookkupalam loan cheating case, died on June 21.
