THIRUVANANTHAPURAM : In the wake of recent revelations by the former investigation officer of Marad massacre, the Marad Arayasamajam has approached the State Government seeking efforts for a CBI probe.

In a memorandum submitted before Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, the organisation pointed out that retired Crime Branch SP C M Pradeep Kumar, who was heading the investigation team into the case, has stated that Marad massacre is a “coordinated terrorist attack.”

The association already demanded that the conspiracy, financial sources and terrorist links behind the massacre should be probed by a central agency.

The directive by Marad Judicial Commission has also supported these findings. In his revelations, Pradeep Kumar has pointed at the need for CBI probe into the issue. In the light of these revelations, the State Government should make a move to conduct CBI probe, the memorandum said.

The memorandum was submitted by Araya Samajam leaders K Dasan, T Murukesan, Hindu Aiykavedi state general secretary V Sushikumar, state council member Anil Thirumala and C Gangadharan.

“The Chief Minister has assured to look into the issue and take an appropriate decision,” said V Sushikumar.
