Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Thursday May 5, 2022

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.
