PALAKKAD: Dousing grave murder allegations, the police informed the Kerala State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC) the two sisters in Walayar had committed suicide and there was not one iota of evidence to prove otherwise. Investigating officer DySP Sojan told ‘Express’ though he had submitted the report to KSHRC in Thiruvananthapuram a month ago, it was only now the news hogged headlines.

He said they investigated all possible angles in the case and even the lab results were considered. The suicide of the 11-year-old elder sister was never in doubt, but the death of the nine-year-old raised a question mark over how such a small girl could commit suicide.

But the evidence collected so far, including the report from the Thrissur Medical College  Hospital, doesn’t subscribe to the murder angle making rounds.
