TP murder: K K Rema says Home Minister behind delay in CBI Probe

Thiruvananthapuram: K K Rema, wife of RMP leader T P Chandrasekharan, on Monday said the Home Ministry was deliberating delaying the process to order a CBI probe into the murder of Chandrasekharan.

“It is because of a secret understanding between Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala and the CPI-M that the case of is not handed over to the CBI. I will begin an indefinite hunger strike in front of the Secretariat if the government delays the process further,” Rema said.

Earlier in January, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the state government would again write to the Centre seeking a CBI probe into the 'conspiracy' behind the murder of Chandrasekharan.

"We will support the demand (by the slain leader's wife K K Rema), we will not hesitate to ask for an investigation by the CBI into the conspiracy angle of the murder and write to the Centre again", he had said.

He was responding to a question on Rema recently writing a letter to the Centre pressing for a CBI probe into the killing of her husband in 2012.

The government, however, has not taken any steps in that regard after that.

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

A court had in 2014 sentenced 11 persons, three of them local CPI-M functionaries, to life imprisonment.

However, Rema had alleged that bigwigs of CPI-M were involved in the conspiracy to murder Chandrasekheran.

Rema had also approached the Union Personnel Ministry requesting to take a re-look into the CBI's stance that it cannot investigate the case.

In May 2014, the CBI had sent a report to the Ministry of Personnel saying that it saw no role in the case as the matter had already been investigated by the local police.
