“Mr. Pillai had served as the managing director of the company till 2014 and after that, he was
not associated with the company. Some persons are deliberately trying to tarnish the image of
RP Group and its chairman Mr. Pillai. When they staged a protest in Kollam on January 30, we
had asked for documents proving they were employees of RP Group and none of the protesters
could provide that so far. The Kollam city police and the Crime Branch are investigating the
case,” said Anantha Krishnan, administration manager of RP Group.
