‘Don’t crucify innocent man’

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Monday sought to protect the image of party colleague and RS Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien as chaos reigned in the Kerala assembly over the apex court order on the Suryanelli case.

‘A guilty (person) should be punished. But at the same time, an innocent should not be crucified in any manner. This is most improper,’ Chandy said.

Meanwhile, the victim too has been asserting that P J Kurien was among those who exploited her in 1996.

‘You were the chief minister (2006-11) and you never did anything when the apex court exonerated Kurien. We know that none can go against the rule of law of the land and according to the rules, no appeal can be given. Hence we will not blame you,’ Chandy said, referring to leader of opposition in the house V S Achuthanandan.
