Kerala to bring laws to prevent attacks on cops
Kozhikode: The Kerala government will soon come out with a fresh set of laws to act tough on people who attack police officials or their families, state Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said Thursday.
"The government is working this out. All necessary changes and modifications have been made in existing laws. Once passed, Kerala will be the first state to have this," Radhakrishnan told police trainees at a passing out parade in Malappuram near here.
"The new law will not only act tough against those who attack police but also their family members," Radhakrishnan said.
The state government, led by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, had assured the police force that it would not sit idle after some police officials, probing the murder of former Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader T.P. Chandrasekheran, were allegedly threatened by CPI-M workers.
Of the 76 accused in the case, more than half are close to the CPI-M.
Chandrasekheran, 51, had quit CPI-M in 2008 to form his own outfit.
