Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister
Oommen Chandy on Thursday termed as "brutal" the attack on a school
teacher in Kollam district and said government would bring the
culprits to justice.
Chandy was replying to a submission in the state Assembly
on the manhandling of Krishnakumar (47), a teacher in the
private RVVHS School owned by the family of former state
minister and Kerala Congress (B) leader R Balakrishna Pillai.
Krishnakumar was found in a serious condition on the
roadside at Valakam near Kottarakkara in the wee hours
yesterday. He was admitted to the Medical College Hospital
Krishnakumar`s wife Geetha, who is also a teacher in
the same school, alleged that her husband has, of late, been
not on good terms with the school management.
In her submission, Aisha Potti, CPI(M) MLA from
Kottarakkara, alleged that a conspiracy was behind the attack
and only a comprehensive probe by a special police team would
reveal the truth.
