Eldhose Kunnappilly, a Congress MLA, has been granted anticipatory bail in connection with rape charges by the Kerala High Court

Congress MLA Eldhose Kunnappily was granted anticipatory bail in a rape case on Friday by the Kerala High Court. On October 20, the High Court dismissed two appeals against Kunnappily’s anticipatory bail granted by a Sessions Court.

As a result of a rape and attempted murder case filed against Kunnappily by a woman in October, Kunnappily was suspended from the Kerala Congress. An action was filed against three individuals, including the personal assistant of the MLA and a friend, in connection with an incident that occurred on September 14.

According to Live Law, a state appeal argued that the Sessions Court erred by granting pre-arrest bail during the initial stages of the investigation.

Having remained untraceable for nearly two weeks following the case filing, Kunnappilly appeared before the investigator two days after the district sessions court in Thiruvananthapuram granted anticipatory bail. In his media appearance, the Perumbavoor MLA asserted that he was innocent and had not committed any misconduct.

As of October, the complainant alleged that he had offered her Rs 30 lakh to settle the case against him. He arrived at my home in a state of intoxication. Assaulting and forcing me into his car, he took me to Kovalam without my consent. The MLA there assaulted me. Police were informed of the assault by locals who witnessed it. He told the police I was his wife and left me in his vehicle. Afterwards, he assaulted me once again at my residence. According to her, she was injured and was taken to the hospital.
