Submission of the Murder Case Report


Letter S- Submission of the Chembolil Murder Case Report

To read the story of the letter R, please click here.

Some witnesses, who the police claimed to have corroborated with the material evidence, denied knowing the police version.  They held the view the police planted such pieces of evidence.

30 July 2016, The Special Investigation Team submitted the case report of the Cembolil murder case to the trial court at Ernakulum.  

There was substantial media interest in the case.  Through their breaking news, interviews and panel discussions, the public got a clear idea about the matters contained in the crime report. 

According to the report, the Bengali migrant labourer the investigation team nabbed from the deprived area in the Assam state of India was a loner suspect in the case.

A disturbing thing since the news about the migrant's arrest got reported in the media was a considered part of the public was sceptic about it.  Their public protest had resulted in the authorities showing interest in the case and prioritising it as a high-profile criminal case.  But they couldn't get convinced the man had committed the offence.  The destruct was caused by their lack of trust in everyone holding power-- the political parties, the officials, the neighbourhood, the victim's mother, the police force, the circumstantial evidence offered by the neighbourhood area.  

There were contradictions in the evidence given by the neighbourhood.  Some of them have reported that they were coached by the police to the media.  The victim's mother gave contradicting statements to the police and the channel interviews.  At times she stated she didn't know the suspect. At other, she followed the police statements and at other times, and that the man was not capable of doing the murder alone.

Some witnesses, who the police claimed to have corroborated with the material evidence, denied knowing the police version.  They held the view the police planted such pieces of evidence.

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
