Lawyer alleges rights violation

KOZHIKODE: A lawyer of the Kozhikode Bar has alleged police inaction in a complaint filed by him, resulting in human rights violation.

Addressing presspersons here on Saturday, Palath Imbichi Koya alleged that he was attacked by a gang in his office at the behest of a councillor of the Kozhikode Corporation on April 14, 2003.

The gang also robbed him of Rs.1.70 lakh that had been paid as fee by a client. The complaint filed by him at the town police station had been dismissed as not admissible, he said.

Mr. Koya said that despite a directive issued by the Home Department to the Crime Branch Police, no steps have been taken to arrest or question the guilty.
