Kerala dalit rape-cum-murder case: High Court rejects plea by victim's father for CBI probe

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday dismissed writ pleas seeking a CBI probe into the sensational rape and murder of a Dalit woman in nearby Perumbavoor in April this year.

Rejecting the pleas filed by father of the woman and her friends, Justice Sunil Thomas said there were no circumstances available in the case warranting a CBI probe.

Meanwhile, the victim's mother impleaded in the petition maintained her stand that the Special Investigation Team constituted by the state government was efficient and there was no need for a further probe.

The SIT of Kerala Police has filed the charge sheet in a court here in the rape-cum-murder case.

The charge sheet, submitted in the Ernakulam Principal Sessions Court, has named Ameerul Islam, a native of Assam who was arrested in June, as the lone accused in the case and charged him with offences, including rape and murder.
