Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi Tuesday ordered a CB-CID probe into the murder of a CPI(M) functionary in Namakkal recently.

In an official press release here, DGP Letika Saran said that the probe has been transferred from local police to the CB-CID on the orders of the Chief Minister.

A case under different sections of IPC, including murder had been already registered, she said.
