Kochi, Apr 6 (UNI) The Kerala High Court today issued notice to the state government and the accused in the ice cream parlour sex scandal on a revision petition challenging the acquittal of the accused.

While admitting the revision petition filed by ''Anweshi'' women's rights organisation president K Ajitha, Justice J M James summoned the case records from the Principal Asst. Sessions Court, Kozhikode, and posted the petition for hearing after the summer vacation.

The trial court acquitted all the 16 accused after the main witnesses in the case turned hostile.

The revision petition said there was no fair trial in the case.
