CBI-Probe

The members of Akhila Karnataka Catholic Christians’ Association on Sunday reiterated their demand for a CBI investigation  into the murder of rector K J Thomas last year. They took out a protest march from a church in Kammanahalli to Home Minister K J George’s residence.

A memorandum addressed to the Home Minister was submitted to his secretary. In the memorandum, the members demanded a CBI probe into the case and the release of Fr William and Fr Illiyas, who have been arrested in connection with the case.

Forum secretary Rafael Raj said, “Our agenda will be the same till the government decides to take some action and requests the CBI to intervene. We hope our efforts do not go in vain.”

Dev Kumar, vice-president of the forum, said, “If the government still doesn’t heed to our appeal, then we will be forced to meet the Chief Minister in our next protest.” He also hinted at a state-wide agitation if the forum’s demands are not met.
