Govt agrees in principle to seek CBI probe
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 today.
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.
