Relatives of Chembarika Khasi C M Abdulla Moulavi, whose death case has been investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation, have filed a complaint petition before the Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate in protest to closure report filed by the CBI recently. The petition filed by Muhammad Shafi, son of the Khasi, stated that the CBI had predetermined the death as suicide without conducting a proper investigation into it.

According to the petition of Shafi, there were strong reasons to prove that the death of his father was not suicide or accident, but absolute homicide through deceitful designs. He stated that the CBI in the investigation had stated that the health condition of the deceased was the reason for his death. But the petitioner said that even though he was suffering from cirrhosis and liver cancer, he did not take painkillers.

He made no complaint regarding pain except the occasion of bleeding in stomach for which he had undergone surgery. Shafi said that the Khasi was leading a quiet life. The investigative agencies first received a piece of paper from the deceased’s body which they claimed to be a suicide note.

Later, it was clarified that the paper recovered was a translation of ‘Baith No 19’ of ‘Kaseedathul Burdha’, which was given to Ismai Vilampath, a teacher, for some corrections. Later, the CBI relied on a note prepared by the deceased in which ‘payable and receivables’ were mentioned to claim his death as suicide. He said that from the postmortem report, nobody can deduct whether the death is suicide or accident. The spine had broken in such a way that body must have fell off and came into contact with water surface in a supine position. If it is so, the body might have been dropped by someone. If his body was hit by a rock after he jumped into the water, there should have been tissue injuries. But such a thing was not mentioned in the postmortem report.

Besides, his health condition was weak enough to climb a rock near the beach as he had ailment in his knees and could not walk without the support of a healthy person. Usually, their family members wake up early morning for the morning Namaz, but on the said day, all woke up very late. From this, they suspect some chemical was used to make them sleep longer before moving the Kashi out of the residence.
