List of Congress MPs with criminal cases — including one with 887 offences
More than half the Members of Parliament (MP) from Congress have criminal cases registered against them — and none can attest to that better than Congress’ Dean Kuriakose from the Idukki constituency in Kerala. He has 204 criminal cases registered against him, which is more than any other member of parliament.
In addition to being the only Member of Parliament with cases against him in the triple digits, there are 887 offences registered against him under the Indian Penal Code — including charges of committing culpable homicide, house trespass, robbery and criminal intimidation.
Overall, 57% of Congress’ MPs — 29 out of 51 — have declared criminal cases. However, only 19 fall under the category of ‘serious criminal cases’, which is an offence which is non-bailable with a maximum term of five years or more.
