Kannur (Kerala), June 20 (TIWN) A team of police officials from Mumbai is in Kannur to arrest Binoy Kodiyeri, son of Kerala CPI-M Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, after a rape case was filed against him in Mumbai.

 The case was filed on the basis of a complaint from a 33-year-old woman from Bihar, a former bar dancer, who has alleged that Binoy Vinodini Balakrishnan sexually assaulted her promising marriage and that she has an eight year old son from him.  Admitting that he knew the woman, Binoy, however, said the allegation was "baseless". Six months ago, the woman had sent a letter to him demanding Rs five crore and alleging that he had married her and had a child from her, Binoy told television channels in Thiruvananthapuram. 

"I got married in 2008. There is no need for me to keep it under wraps. This is a blackmailing ploy from the complainant," he said.  Binoy said he filed a complaint in May against the woman with the Inspector General of Police, Kannur range. 

The complaint was forwarded to then Kannur Superintendent of Police (SP) G Siva Vikram for further action.  But with the Lok Sabha polls going on and due to jurisdiction issues, no further action could be taken, police sources told PTI.  Binoy said the Mumbai police had not got in touch with him so far and that he was prepared to face the case legally.  Based on the woman's complaint, Binoy has been booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 420 (cheating) and 376 (rape), Oshiwara police station's senior inspector Shailesh Pasalwad said in Mumbai.  The complainant had got acquainted with the accused some years ago when she used to work as a bar dancer in Dubai, he said.
