Kasaragod: In an unexpected twist to the brutal political double murder of two Youth Congress, the main accused and CPI(M) leader Peethambaran has denied the charges leveled against him.
While denying the charges in front of the Hosdurg First Class Magistrate, Peethambaran said that he admitted to the political murders under police threat and torture.
Peethambaran’s denial comes amid reports suggesting that the conspiracy to kill the two Congress workers was hatched at the CPI(M) Branch Office.
Earlier, Peethambaran’s wife had alleged that her husband will commit a crime only under direct orders from the Communist Party.
Meanwhile, the Court remanded Peethambaran and second accused Saji George.
