Binoy Kodiyeri, the son of CPM Kerala chief Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, has now moved to the Bombay High Court seeking to quash the sexual exploitation case against him. His plea would be heard on July 24.
As per reports, Binoy had approached the Bombay High Court last Wednesday seeking to quash the FIR against him. Citing the contradictions in the woman’s statements, he has stated in his petition that the case was forged.
Binoy, who is currently on bail, was required to visit the investigating officer today. As per his bail condition he needs to visit Oshiwara police station every Monday for one month. He was also required to give a blood sample for the DNA test which would be the first and final evidence that would decide the fate of the case.
Last Monday Binoy had appeared before his investigating officer. However, he refused to give his blood sample claiming he was sick. He was scheduled to give his blood sample today. Some reports also claim that the petition in the high court has been filed to avoid the DNA test.
Binoy Kodiyeri was booked in a rape case over a complaint filed by a 33-year-old woman. Mumbai Police had registered a case against Binoy after the woman alleged that he had raped her repeatedly over a decade under the pretext of marrying her.
The woman had also alleged that she was kept in dark regarding Binoy’s marital status. The woman also has an eight-year-old son who she claims was fathered by Binoy.
After the complaints, Binoy had absconded from the Mumbai Police. The police had even issued a look-out notice for him.
Hearing about the trouble Binoy was going through, a journalist from Kerala O Abdulla had invited Binoy Kodiyeri, son of Kerala CPM chief Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, to join Islam as a solution to the current rape charges that he is facing.
