Thiruvananthapuram : Opposition Leader VD Satheesan said he was unable to contact Eldose Kunnapilli over phone, adding that, the MLA  facing  rape and battery charges, must  get in touch with KPCC soon. Satheesan further said the party was on victim side and will ensure optimal action over what occured.

It’s not right to criticise KPCC of inaction. It has been communicated to all places connected to Eldose for him to come and give detailed account, said Satheesan.

Meanwhile, Crime Branch is preparing arrest Eldose Kunnapilli. The accused being a  legislator, the City Commissioner has made submission to Speaker seeking permission to go ahead with the arrest procedure. Things gained momentum  after Eldose became booked for rape charges. He faces up to 10-year imprisonment under 376(2) charges mounted by the Crime Branch.

Eldose’s plea for anticipatory bail is due for hearing tomorrow. Crime Branch will today plea with court for recording the victim’s testimony in secret.

Case : The woman, a private school teacher, accused Eldose of raping  her on different occasions promising to marry her. She said the MLA was violent and that she resorted to complaint with police when she could no longer stand his harassment.
