Mumbai, Sep 15 (UNI) Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil today said the government would seek legal advice for further appeal in the Khairlanji murder case, after completion of the verdict.
The culprits should be punished and such incidents should not happen in the state, Mr Patil said in a release issued here.
The government would also talk with CBI in this matter, he informed. Several RPI leaders including Prakash Ambedkar and Jogendra Kawade have condemned today's judgement.
