In a crucial finding, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) stated that Bineesh Kodiyeri, son of state CPM secretary, used to run many businesses with Anoop Mohammad, accused in the Bengaluru drug case. The investigation agency also said that Bineesh controlled Anoop from Kerala.
ED also said that Bineesh’s statement that he never knew of Anoop’s drug dealing is not trustworthy.

From this it is understood that Anoop was working for Bineesh in Bengaluru, ED informed the court yesterday to get Bineesh in the custody.
