Palakkad: The High Court on Thursday rejected a petition seeking handover of the RSS worker Sanjith’s murder case over to CBI. The Police Chief must oversee investigations and continue to do so until the last of culprits is arrested, said Justice K Harilal in the ruling.
The slain RSS worker’s wife, Arshi, had approached court with the petition. Sanjith was hacked to death by Popular Front workers on 5 December, 2021 while riding on bike with his wife. 21 persons have been arrested so far in the case.
