The central agency Enforcement Directorate (ED) said Bineesh Kodiyeri, the son of Kerala CPI(M) State Secretary, was the financier of the drug cartel and pumped a lot of unaccounted funds into the bank account of a drug peddler, Anoop Mohammad. The statement of ED came a day after the arrest of Kodiyeri. ED stated that Mohammad was just a ‘Benami’ of Kodiyeri and allegedly ensured funds for varying sources for drug peddling.

On Thursday, Kodiyeri was arrested by ED in Bengaluru and has been taken into custody for a period of four days by a court. The trouble all started for Kodiyeri after the accused Anoop Mohammad had mentioned his name during interrogation to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). He had said, “Kodiyeri, second son of CPI(M) leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, had helped me a lot with his business venture.” Later his name was also found in the call list of the accused.

On fund trail investigation it was seen that a large sum of money on a frequent basis was credited in Mohammad’s account by Kodiyeri. This was said to be going on since 2017. Kodiyeri is now also booked under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and more cases are said to be slapped against him by NCB. The agency is said to move a separate plea for custodial interrogation of Kodiyeri in a few days. A rape and fraud case is also pending against Bineesh Kodiyeri.
