Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala government on Friday decided in principle to seek a CBI probe into the 'conspiracy' behind the murder of RMP leader T P Chandrasekharan, whose wife is on an indefinite fast in front of the secretariat here demanding a probe by the agency in the case.

Announcing the government decision during a cabinet briefing, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy requested K K Rema, wife of Chandrasekheran, to call off the fast that entered the fifth day Friday.

However, he said government has to complete certain technical, legal and other procedures to formally order a CBI probe into the issue. The Chief Minister said government is in favour of any probe into the murder of Chandrasekharan, a 'heinous' one in the political history of the state.

A CPI-M rebel, who floated a parallel Left outfit called Revolutionary Marxist Party in his home turf Onchiyam in north Kerala, Chandrasekharan was hacked to death in May 2012.

Last month, a special court sentenced 11 persons, three of them local CPI-M functionaries, to life imprisonment.

Rema had alleged that bigwigs of CPI(M) were involved in the conspiracy to murder Chandrasekheran, who had challenged the parent party in its red bastion by floating a parallel left outfit, Revolutionary Marxist Party.
