Kerala Government's counter affidavit in a case filed by comrade A Varghese's brothers for compensation, as the CBI court had convicted then police officer Laxmana for murdering comrade A Varghese who was under police custody in 1970, which had been upheld by the division bench of Kerala High Court, says that comrade Varghese was dacoit, murderer and a notorious criminal. The said Affidavit states that, he was not at all murdered by police; instead, was killed in actual encounter.

This is contrary to facts and defamatory to a brave martyr. This is highly diplorable.

On March 2nd 1970, then Opposition Leader of Kerala legislative assembly, Comrade EMS had stated in the Legislative Assembly that Comrade A Varghese did not die in actual encounter instead, had been cold bloodedly murdered by police under Captivity. Comrade EMS was refuting then home minister of Kerala Mr. C H Muhamad Koya who stated in the Kerala Assembly that Comrade A Varghese was killed in actual encounter.

So, we appeal to the Kerala Government that this erroneous stand of the government be corrected based on facts long defended by democratic and left forces as evident by Comrade EMS's above stated stand.
