BJP suspects terror angle in killing of party`s TN leader

Rajnath Singh has appealed to the Tamil Nadu government to fast track probe into all cases of attacks on leaders of the BJP and nationalist organisations.

New Delhi: A three-member BJP team to inquire into the murder of party`s Tamil Nadu unit general secretary V Ramesh in Salem in July on Thursday submitted its report and demanded that the case be tried in a fast track court and suspected terror angle in the matter be probed.

BJP spokesperson and MP Prakash Javadekar, who headed the inquiry panel appointed by party president Rajnath Singh, said policy failure on the part of the Congress-led Central government has led to proliferation of home-grown terror in the country.

The team, which had BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman and MP Ananth Kumar Hegde as the other two members, suspects the hand of such a terror group behind the brutal killing of Ramesh. He was killed on the night of July 19 in Salem.

Rajnath Singh has appealed to the Tamil Nadu government to fast track probe into all cases of attacks on leaders of the BJP and nationalist organisations. He said the real conspiracy behind Ramesh`s murder should be unearthed.

The party feels there is possibility of a terror angle in the murder and this needs to be probed.

"There is a larger conspiracy here. There is a method and a lot of similarities in all the attacks on nationalist leaders in Tamil Nadu," Javadekar said.
