PJ Kurien

Thodupuzha: The Sessions Court at Thodupuzha dismissed the petition filed by the Suryanelli girl against the Rajyasabha Vice Chairman P J Kurien. The court was dismissing the review petition praying for the inclusion of P J Kurien as an accused in the light of the disclosure made by another accused Dharmarajan. The Judge Abraham Mathew in his ruling said that the disclosure by Dharmarajan cannot be taken at its face value.

The advocate of the girl M R Rajendrakumar said he will approach the High Court against the ruling of this court. He said that Dharmarajan was forced to change his statement under pressure.
