Three days before the assembly election, on April 3rd, a high-way robbery occurred between Thrissur and Kochi. The gang looted an amount of Rs. 3.5 crore. 

The case took a new turn on Saturday when the police decided to question state BJP leaders. The crime Branch issued notice to BJP state General Secretary and senior RSS pracharak M Ganeshan and BJP state office Secretary G Gireeshan. They were asked to appear before the investigating team on Sunday. Three BJP leaders from Thrissur were questioned on Saturday.  

 “There is a bid to link the case with BJP. Neither BJP nor NDA has illegal financial transactions. We had only digital transactions in this election in Kerala. The questioning of BJP leaders is only a drama. Police say the gang had robbed Rs 3.5 crore, but they are yet to produce the looted money. This police drama to tarnish BJP will not succeed. The BJP did not use illegal money in this election,”

BJP State President K Surendran said, denying BJP’s link with the case.

“We are looking at the source of money as well as its destination. More BJP leaders, including national leaders, would be questioned to verify the source of funds,’’ a police officer said.

A complaint was made of looting 25 lakh, but the actual amount was 3.5 crore. “We have recovered Rs one crore… The looted money was shared among the gang and stashed in various places. We hope to recover the rest of the amount in the coming days,’’ a police source said.
