Sathyan's murder was planned and carried out by CPM; local leader raises shocking allegation against party

cpm

KAYAMKULAM: CPM local leader and Alappuzha district panchayat member Bipin.C.Babu has put the CPM on the defensive by revealing that the assassination of INTUC leader Sathyan in Kayamkulam in 2001 was planned and carried out by the CPM. Bipin made this revelation in the letter he wrote to CPM state secretary MV Govindan expressing his willingness to resign as district panchayat member in protest against his demotion in the party.

Sathyan, who was an RSS worker, later joined the INTUC. He was murdered in 2001 at Kareelakulangara in Kayamkulam. Bipin was the sixth accused in the case where there were seven accused. In 2006, the court acquitted all seven accused citing lack of evidence.

In his letter, Bipin stated that although he was innocent in the murder case, he remained in prison for two months at the age of 19 as he was named an accused in the case. Meanwhile, the Congress has demanded a re-investigation into the case based on Bipin's disclosure.

Earlier, the CPM had expelled Bipin from the party after his wife, a former member of the DYFI district committee, complained to the party against him alleging domestic abuse. Although he was reinstated in the party the other day, he was included in the local committee instead of the area committee. It was in response to this that Bipin sent the letter claiming the party had demoted him. Meanwhile, one section of the CPM has alleged that the resignation threat was a pressure ploy by Bipin.
