Kodiyeri Balakrishnan's son Bineesh Kodiyeri arrested in Bengaluru drug case

Bineesh Kodiyeri, son of CPI(M) Kerala State Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, has been taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the probe over the money-trail in a drug racket case. Bineesh was questioned at the agency’s office in Bengaluru over his alleged links to Mohammed Anoop, an accused in a drug racket case busted by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) here in August. This was the third time that the ED is questioning Bineesh in a span of two months.

During their raids in Bangalore, the NCB recovered a huge cache of party drugs from Anoop and during this investigation, Bineesh’s name surfaced.
