Chembarika Qazi's death: CBI rules out homicide chargetext_fields
Kochi: The CBI has again ruled out the charge of homicide connected withthe death of Qazi C M Abdulla Moulavi, who was found dead on February 15, 2010, on Chembarika beach in Kasargod. A report in this regard was filed by CBI officer K J Darwin at Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate Court. This is the fourth time CBI is submitting its report in the case.
Though the CBI report rules out possibilities of homicide, it said that the cause of death, if it was suicide or by accident, could not be ascertained. The earlier report of CBI had suggested that the cause of death may be attributed to suicide than murder. However, the new report says that nothing was found as evidence to suggest that it was a case of suicide.
CBI claimed that it arrived at the conclusion as per the psychological analytical reports prepared by a group including Pshyciatry Additional Professor Dr. Vikas Menon of JIPMER, Forensic Medicine Chief Dr. Kusakumar Saha, Psychiatry Professor Dr. Moushmi Purkayasta, clinical psychologist K. Arivazhagan, psychiatry social worker K. Reshma and others.
Moulavi, who was a cancer patient during his last days, was Qazi of 140 Mahals (Local Muslim communities).
A reinvestigation in the case was ordered considering a petition which claimed that Qazi, who led a genuine religious life, would not resort to suicide.
The Court has ordered to issue a notice to the petitioners to respond by 29 February 2020, in case of any objections to concluding the probe.
