National Intelligence Agency (NIA) reports to Kerala State Police Chief (SPC) states that 873 policemen of Kerala Police have Popular Front of India (PFI) links. The report has been handed over to SPC. The suspected are under the observation of NIA. Civil Policemen, Sub Inspectors, Station House Officers (SHO) are in this list. Now, the central agencies are checking and collecting the details of their financial transactions. Top officers and police men working for Kerala Police’s Special Branch, Intelligence and Law & Order are the men under central agencies’ scanner. They are alleged to have leaked the movements, checking and raids of the police to PFI.
In February 2022, a civil officer of Karumannur Police Station in Thodupuzha region (Idukki district), was dismissed from the service for leaking details of RSS leaders and workers to the leaders of PFI. Three policemen, including an Additional Sub Inspector (ASI) in Moonnar, were transferred from there for the same offence.
Leaders of RSS, BJP and Sangh-inspired and nationalist movements have been pointing out the above trends in the Kerala Police since long. They had raised a very important allegation that there is a WhatsApp Group called “Pachavelicham” (Green Light) within Kerala Police. The Group was intended to carry out the aforementioned activities. “Rulers” have been neglecting it. Now, the people of Kerala eagerly wait to see what step Government of Kerala, read, Home Ministry of Kerala presided by CPM supremo and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, takes in this matter. There is large scale scepticism, because, there are news that police have been instructed ‘not to be in haste’ in sealing the offices of the outlawed PFI. Then came up the news that PFI workers removed files before the police came to seal their offices. It implies that they got sweet time to do the needful. There are also news that PFI workers removed weapons and arms from their offices and took them to Tamil Nadu.
