Secretariat fire: Police use water canons to disperse BJP protesters

Aug 26, 2020 13:59 IST

Police in Thiruvananthapuram used water cannon to disperse BJP Yuva Morcha workers who were heading towards Kerala Secretariat to protest against the fire that broke out at the protocol department of the Secretariat on Tuesday. The workers have alleged that it was a conspiracy to destroy evidence related to a recent gold smuggling case. The Kerala government, on the other hand suspected a ''conspiracy'' by opposition in the matter. The Congress demanded an NIA probe while BJP state chief K Surendran courted arrest for forcefully entering the complex after the fire broke out.
