Sisters’ killings: Cong seeks Shah’s help

New Delhi, November 19

In a surprise move, the Congress has sought intervention of Home Minister Amit Shah to initiate a CBI probe into the sensational murder of two Dalit sisters in which the accused were allegedly shielded by the CPM-led LDF government in Kerala.

Raising the issue in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, the Congress sought intervention of the Union Home Minister to order a CBI probe into the gruesome killings which has rocked the southern state.

Amid noisy scenes in the House, Congress MP from Mavelikara Kodikummil Suresh alleged the accused were blatantly shielded by the Left government. The MP said the investigation was manipulated by the police to favour the culprits who indulged in unatural sex and torture, which finally culimated into the cold-blooded killings of the two sisters aged, 9 and 11 years. Speaker Om Birla said the matter was serious and the House would look into it. The case surfaced in January 2017 and sent shock waves in Kerala. — IANS
