Maoist leader, wife accuse police of foisting cases
P. A. Shyna, wife of CPI (Maoist) leader T. Roopesh, said that the police had been stacking up cases one after another against her and Roopesh to ensure that they do not come out of the prison. “Today, they have arrested us in another case using fabricated evidence,” she told The Hindu while coming out of the Principal District and Sessions Judge’s court here on Thursday. Shyna’s husband T. Praveen, also known as Roopesh, said that they had not harmed anyone and all the cases registered against them were fake.
The Tirupur North police produced Shyna and Roopesh in the Principal District and Session Judge’s court in connection with a case registered against them based on a complaint filed by S. Parvathi (43) and Sudamalaimanai (47), both residents of Tirupur city. The complainants stated that their ration card copies and photographs had been misused by Roopesh and Shyna to obtain SIM cards.
