The statement, made by the investigating officer of Konni Police Station in crime No.133/2006, as submitted by the prosecution, is not correct, submits the counsel. The learned Public Prosecutor is not able to give other details of the involvement of the petitioner, except that at the time of the seizure of ten liters of arrack, on 15.5.2006, the petitioner, accused, in this case, had run away.
