Kozhikode: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Mullappally Ramachandran has said there are no legal hurdles in ordering a CBI probe into the murder of T.P Chandrasekharan.
Talking to reporters here on Monday, Mullappally said the State government should clarify why did not hand over the probe in the case to the CBI.
“Ramesh Chennithala had visited the residence of slain RMP leader T.P Chandrasekharan and ensured a transparent probe in the case when he held the post of KPCC president. It is regrettable that the move to hand over the case to the CBI is getting late after he sworn-in as the Home Minister,” Mullappally said.
Meanwhile, K.K Rama, wife of slain RMP leader T.P Chandrasekharan, Monday began her indefinite fast in front of the Secretariat, demanding a CBI inquiry into the murder case.
Though Director General of Prosecutions T Asaf Ali on Thursday had given the advice for a CBI probe into the conspiracy charge relating to the murder of T P Chandrasekharan, the State government is yet to take a decision on the matter.
Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala on Sunday said a decision on handing over the T.P murder case to the CBI would be taken after reviewing the legal advice given by the Director General of Prosecutions.
