Kochi: Police today registered cases against a vendor and an agent for providing mobile connection to one of the accused in the attack on Newman College Professor T J Joseph.
Police said the accused had taken mobile connection from a vendor in Kothamangalam by producing false documents and the vendor and agent had given the connection without verifying the documents. The two had been booked under sections 430 and 419 of the IPC for cheating, police added.
The police yesterday arrested two people -- Kamaruddin and Sajir -- for the attack on Professor Joseph at Muvattupuzha on July four.
Till date four people had been arrested in connection with the attack as Jaffer and Ashraf -- both reportedly belonging to Popular Front of India -- were taken into custody early this week.
Professor Joseph, who was in the eye of storm over preparation of question papers having adverse religious and blasphemous remarks, was allegedly attacked by a gang of eight people.
He was suspended from the Malayalam Department of the Newman College, Thodupuzha, after allegedly preparing a Malayalam question paper for second year BCom examinations which contained inappropriate religious remarks.
In the attack, Professor Joseph sustained serious injuries and was undergoing treatment in a private hospital here.
Meanwhile, Popular Front of India in a press statement denies it has anything to do with the attack.
The press release issued by K. M. Shareef, General Secretary of PFI, said that immediately after the incident, in which a college teacher, an accused in a criminal case of preparing a question paper defaming Holy Prophet, the Kerala state leadership had condemned the incident.
It is not the policy of Popular Front of India to engage in such activities and the organization is committed to uphold the rule of law, Shareef asserted.
