CBI to probe Sreejiv custodial death case in Kerala
The Centre agreed to give Sreejiv custodial death case to CBI. The central agency to probe after Sreejith, Sreejiv's brother, has been protesting to seek justice for the last 767 days outside Secretariat in Thiruvananthapuram.
Sreejith, said, "Will continue my protest till the CBI probe begins, will also consult legal experts."
The Kerala government has again written to the Centre seeking a CBI probe into the alleged custodial death of a youth in May 2014, as the protest by his brother in front of the secretariat entered 767th day today.
The letter in this regard was sent on January 13th night by the state chief secretary asking CBI to re-examine its earlier decision not to take up the case. The state government had in July last year written to the Centre for a CBI investigation as some police personnel were accused in the case registered in Parassala police station.
However, the plea was rejected by CBI stating they had an overload of cases and this particular incident did not come under the rarest of rare cases, the release stated.
The protesting youth, Sreejith, has been lying in front of the Secretariat here for the past 767 days, demanding a CBI inquiry into his brother's death and bringing the guilty to book.
