KOCHI: Alleging lapses in the police probe into the death of their son Sajith Kumar, the parents of the youth have written to the President seeking a CBI probe into the incident.
A C Sankar and his wife Usha Kumari from Kalorkkadu near Muvattupuzha – whose son died on August 5, 2012, after the cab he drove collided with a container lorry at Puthencruz – told reporters here on Wednesday the police had not investigated all aspects of the case.

“We have no confidence in the probe carried out by the Kerala Police. Initially, we were told Sajith was only admitted to a hospital. We asked the hospital authorities to discharge him so that we can admit him to another hospital with better facilities. This was not permitted. Later, he was declared dead,” said Sankar, Sajith’s father.

Sankar and Usha Kumari alleged they had requested the police to provide Sajith’s postmortem and inquest report, but were refused.“We were not allowed to get the reports related to the death of our son. We were verbally abused by the officers whenever we approached them. Only a national agency like CBI can unearth the conspiracy behind the death of our son,” they said.
