The Congress on Thursday warned that it will be forced to take law into its hands if CPI-M legislator A.M. Shamsheer, accused of masterminding the attack on a former party leader in Kerala, was not arrested.
Naseer told police that Tellichery MLA Shamsheer was to blame for the attack. Shamsheer had reportedly threatened Naseer in the past.
"Usually when an allegation is levelled against any member who is present in the House, he is given a chance to explain his case. But Shamsheer did not speak a word," said Muraleedharan.
Three persons have been arrested in connection with the case while two others surrendered in a court near here last week. No action has been taken against Shamsheer.
The CPI-M, which suffered a major blow in the Lok Sabha elections, has appointed an internal committee to investigate the matter.
