Ernakulam: The State Government has once again proved its lenient stand towards the banned terrorist organisation, the Popular Front of India. The Government has hidden the involvement of C A Rauf in the riots on the day of PFI hartal. Rauf’s name was not added in the list of the accused. It is alleged that some CPM leaders secretly help Rauf to escape from the main case. In the documents connected with the confiscation of assets, only the details of his land properties are mentioned.
Rs. five crore and twenty lakh worth public properties were destroyed in several parts of Kerala on the dawn-to-dusk hartal called by the PFI. Following the State wide vandalism, the High Court ordered to retrieve the loss from the banned terrorist organisation that conducted the hartal, and also, from its leaders. But the State Government did not confiscate the assets by the stipulated time and omitted C A Rauf, from the cases too.
The hartal was announced in a press meet conducted by Abdul Sathar, State General Secretary of PFI, and Secretary C A Rauf. Though criticisms are raising from many corners, the Government has started taking steps to confiscate the assets of Abdul Sathar and PFI, omitting C A Rauf. The Government has handed over the land property details possessed by Abdul Sathar and PFI, to the Registration Department. The confiscation process will begin after the documents inspection. Several assets of the banned organisation is registered under the name of charity firms. NIA had frozen their accounts after the ban.
