In response to this heinous crime, the authorities swiftly took action. An FIR (First Information Report) has been registered against the culprits under various sections of the law, including:
- Section 143: Unlawful Assembly of People
- Section 147: Rioting
- Section 323: Intentionally Causing Hurt
- Section 341: Wrongfully Restraining Someone
- Section 153: Incitement with Intent to Incite Riot
These legal measures serve as a stern warning that such acts of violence and terror will not go unpunished.
The ED’s Pursuit of Justice
Coincidentally, on the same day as the incident, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) carried out raids at multiple locations associated with the PFI in Kerala. The ED’s primary objective is to dismantle the money laundering network that supports the banned organization.
These raids spanned across Ernakulam, Mallapuram, Wayanad, and Thrissur districts. Notably, officers from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Kerala Police collaborated with the ED during these operations. This coordinated effort signifies the government’s commitment to eradicating the roots of terrorism and organized crime.
Previous Incidents and the Fight Against Extremism
This incident serves as a stark reminder of previous events. Earlier this year, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) apprehended Mohammed Sadiq, a member of the PFI, in Kollam itself. The arrested individuals were found to have collected sensitive information about RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) leaders, potentially for nefarious purposes.
In a shocking revelation in February 2020, it came to light that PK Anas, a police constable from Idukki, was involved in leaking sensitive information about politicians. These incidents underline the gravity of the situation and the need for stringent measures against such activities.
The Location and the Victim
The distressing incident occurred in the Chanappara area of Kadaikkaal in Kollam. The victim, Halweel Sheene, is posted in the ‘Electronics and Mechanical (EME) cadre of the Indian Army, stationed in Rajasthan. He was abducted from his residence in Kollam, leading to the subsequent brutal attack.
