KOCHI: Mariyu, wife of Muhammed Fasal, the NDF worker who was allegedly hacked to death by CPM activists in 2006, has approached the Kerala High Court seeking a directive to conduct a probe into the role of CPM politburo member and former Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan in the murder case.
The petitioner submitted that from the very beginning there were concerted efforts to scuttle the probe into the case.
She said that her husband was brutally murdered on November, 2006, in pursuance of a criminal conspiracy hatched by the CPM.
The CBI probe has unearthed the role of CPM leaders in the murder. The CBI has questioned two of its leaders and a deeper and stronger conspiracy involving the key role played by Kodiyeri Balakrishnan to scuttle the investigation has come out during the interrogation of the accused. It is learnt that the CBI will question Kodiyeri.
As part of pressure tactics, the CPM had taken out a protest march to the CBI office, in which the state leaders of the party also participated.
So the CBI has now restricted the investigation to the available accused without conducting an effective investigation to unearth the role played by the former Home Minister,” she said.
The petitioner sought a directive to conduct an effective investigation to find out all the conspirators involved in the Fasal murder.
So the direct supervision of the court is essential to unearth the mystery behind the murder.
“The depth of the conspiracy does not end at the district-level secretariat of the CPM. Kodiyeri was also a part of the conspiracy,” she said.
