Kerala CPI(M) leader accused of Kidnapping daughter’s child
The Kerala CPI(M) leader P Jayachandran has been accused by his daughter of allegedly kidnapping his grandchild. The daughter is now staging a dharna outside the Secretariat building in the State.
23-year old woman, daughter of a senior CPI(M) leader here, has accused her parents of forcefully having taken away her newborn child from her soon after its birth a year ago and approached the police seeking to get the baby back. Anupama S Chandran, daughter of CPI(M) local committee member P S Jayachandran, alleged that though she had lodged a complaint with the police several times since April, they were reluctant to register a case against the family members.
However, police here said a case was registered on Tuesday against six people including her parents, sister, and husband, and father’s two friends, and said the delay happened as they were waiting for the legal opinion.
She has launched a protest against this and is sitting on a dharna to get the child back.
According to Anupama’s complaint, her parents did not like her relationship with Ajith, who happens to be a Dalit. Ajith was also a youth federation leader of the Left party. As the child was born out of wedlock, they had forcefully taken away the boy child, three days after she got discharged from the hospital post-delivery.
She left home in April and has been living with Ajith since then, she said. Police, however, said, her father Jayachandran admitted that the child was separated from his daughter by them, but claimed during the interrogation that it was done with her consent.
Anupama said, though all promised help, she and her Dalit husband K Ajith are still searching for their baby, who turned one on Tuesday.
