`Team probing ice cream parlour case to continue`
Kerala CM Oommen Chandy said the SIT constituted by the previous LDF government to probe the `ice cream parlour` sex case would continue investigation into the matter.
Kasargod: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Monday said the Special Investigation Team (SIT)
constituted by the previous LDF government to probe the `ice cream parlour` sex case would continue investigation into the matter.
"Law will take its own course," Chandy said on the
sidelines of a function here, denying CPI-M`s claims that the
UDF government was trying to sabotage the cases involving some
of its ministers by transferring police officers, who were in
charge of the investigations.
Replying to a query whether action would be taken against
former CPI-M Kannur district secretary P Sasi, facing charges
of misbehaviour towards women party functionaries, Chandy said
"if complaint is received, it would be probed."
Earlier, Chandy disbursed financial aid to students and
the families of those affected by endosulfan pesticide.
The Chief Minister said 486 families would get the
assistance, including 176 families who have already been given
Rs 50,000 each by the previous government.
The UDF government had hiked the financial assistance to
Rs one lakh each and as such the 176 families will get another
Rs 50,000 and 310 families will receive Rs one lakh each, he
The government had also decided to start seven special
schools for the endosulfan victims in the district, he said.
