Expressed his fear of conducting wrong investigation in the case, VS' lawyer requested the High Court to make a detailed evaluation in the progress of the investigation. The counsel of the former CM also urged the court to stop the report of the case which is expected to be filed before Dec 22.
However, listening to the argument of the advocate general representing the state government, the High Court dismissed VS' fear as unfounded. The advocate general claimed that the probe into the case was progressing in the right manner.
Here it can be recalled that the High Court earlier had dismissed another petition by VS seeking CBI investigation into the same case. Following an open allegation by the brother-in-law of the main accused, Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader Kunhalikutty, who is now the state Industry Minister, the then CM VS had ordered a fresh inquiry in the case.
Kunhalikutty has been accused of abusing a minor girl and his brother-in-law Rauf later claimed to possess proofs against Kunhalikutty. The sex case showed several stunning secrets evolving around an ice-cream parlour in Kozhikode in the early 1990s.
