Thiruvananthapuram: Even as the Congress led opposition in Kerala supported the efforts to contain the Covid-19 spread in the state, a top leader on Monday asked Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to conduct a detailed probe into the death of former state police official Abdul Azeez.

Azeez passed away on March 31 and Vijayan had announced it was the second death of a coronavirus positive patient in the state.

Congress vice-president T.Sarathchandra Prasad has now asked Vijayan to conduct a comprehensive probe into the death of Azeez.

Prasad said the residents at Pothencode from where Azeez hailed in the capital city outskirts are living in fear and hence a comprehensive probe is needed. He also demanded the release of the results of the Covid 19 test done on the police officer.

"Azeez was a man who lived with his entire family consisting of his wife, daughters and grandchildren. The test results of all his family members have come and all have tested negative. Now their family members categorically say that Azeez did not have the coronavirus and he had other serious heart and kidney ailments," said Prasad.

Prasad said it was on March 23 that he was brought to the state run Medical College hospital in the capital city.
