There has been an attack on Kerala High Court Chief Justice S Manikumar. The incident occurred at Goshree bridge while the chief justice was on the way home from Kochi’s Nedumbassery airport at night. According to the police, the attack was carried out by Tijo, a native of Udumbanchola in the high ranges of Idukki who lives in Puthuvype Beach, Kochi.
Tijo jumped in front of the Chief Justice’s car, hurled slurs, and tried to attack the vehicle. He screamed, “Aren’t you a Tamilian? This is not Tamil Nadu.” Tijo then rushed menacingly toward the car. Thankfully, the chief justice’s escort vehicle and security personnel saved Manikumar from harm.
Later, the Chief Justice’s gunman complained to the Mulavukkad police station, and the accused was immediately arrested. According to the police, the attacker launched himself after identifying the Chief Justice’s vehicle. The Mulavukad police have registered a case and started an investigation.
Local media tried hard to downplay the incident and claimed that Tijo was drunk when the incident occurred. The attacker is also a container trailer driver. Goshree bridge is barely 2 km from the Kerala high court. The accused will be produced in court on Monday.
The Madras High Court appointed Chief Justice S Manikumar, a Tamil Nadu native, as a judge in 2006. In October 2019, he was named Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court.
Incidentally, for the past several weeks, the Kerala High Court has been directing the ‘protestors’ obstructing the construction work of the Vizhinjam International Seaport to remove the obstacles. The court ordered the state government to deploy central security forces in the region. Shady Christian organizations led by the Latin Archdiocese and enemy nations are believed to be behind the protests against Vizhinjam port’s construction. Adani Vizhinjam Port Pvt Ltd (AVPL) has filed a contempt petition with the court, saying that the state government defies the court’s directive to provide police protection.
Latin Catholic priests threatened to burn police stations if the protestors were arrested. Though Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan opposed the strike, his police have not taken any action against the criminal priests nor requested additional central security forces. The whole area is still under the control of the Christian priests and their cronies.
If this is the security that the Chief Justice of Kerala enjoys, the commoner’s situation seems dire. Such attacks on judges were common during the height of terrorism and insurgency in states like Kashmir and Punjab. Murders, atrocities against women and children, drug abuse, and terrorism are all rising in the so-called ‘God’s Own Country.’ Kerala, under the communist regime, is fast falling into anarchy.
