Leaders belonging to the Popular Front of India (PFI) were found using a SIM card bought using the Aadhaar details of a widowed Hindu lady. These leaders are also the same terrorists who directly took part in the brutal assassination of BJP OBC Morcha leader Renjith Sreenivasan on the 19th of December, 2021.
Intelligence investigators found that a SIM card procured in the name of Valsala Krishnankutty, a 54-year-old widow from Punnapra in Alappuzha was being used by one of Ranjith’s murderers hours after Social Democratic Front of India (SDPI) leader KS Shan was killed on December 18th. Earlier, both Valsala’s husband and her only son had met with unnatural deaths.
On August 10th, Valsala gave her Aadhaar details to Mohammed Badusha, who runs a mobile shop named ‘B&B’ to buy a SIM card. Badusha conspired with Sulfikkar, the local PFI ward member from Punnapra ward no. 12, and misused the details to take another SIM card in her name which the criminals then started to use. Both Badusha and Sulfikkar are accused in the Renjith murder case.
Valsala who works as a domestic help knew both Badusha and Sulfikkar since they were her son’s ‘friends.’ Badusha gave her a new SIM after processing her customer application form (CAF) but told her that some error had occurred in processing the first CAF. Unwittingly she agreed, they processed it again, and unknown to her, the terrorists started using the second SIM.
Since all this happened in August, intelligence officers now know that the accused were planning something right from that time. It is now feared that the same modus operandi was used to obtain other SIM cards using false identities and those cards were used for criminal activities.
“My husband died in an accident. I work as domestic help and stay with my sister. I considered Badusha and Sulfikkar as sons as they were my son’s friends. How can they do this to me?” asked Valsala.
Renjith was from a fishing community and was an accomplished advocate. He had no criminal cases against his name and had just been promoted as the state secretary of BJP’s Kerala state OBC Morcha.
On that fateful Sunday morning, Renjith had returned after dropping his elder daughter, Bhagya, at private tuitions. The terrorists were looking for a state-level leader to avenge the killing of their leader Shan. To disfigure him, Renjith was beaten on his face using hammers before being hacked several times.
Ranjith’s younger daughter, Hridya, a Class VI student, saw the attack and so did his wife and mother Vinodini. They tried to resist but were held at bay by sword brandishing terrorists. The gang beat them and when Vinodini fell, a chair was used to subdue her, and all of them were made to watch the hacking.
Seeing security disintegrate, there is anger on the ground. Thousands gathered all over the state following calls from the Hindu Aikya Vedi to protest the central inaction against the growing Talibanism in Kerala. Local police seem tied down by their political masters ruling the state.
In fact, local police registered cases against 200 Hindu activists for speaking against Islamic terrorism and fundamentalism. They were opposing the delay in arresting the PFI-SDPI terrorists who murdered their leader Renjith.
