Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan on Friday alleged that the investigation into the Varapuzha sex scandal case was being impeded and the Home Ministry had avoided the names of some influential persons, including politicians.

In a statement here, he asked the government to entrust the investigation with a team of senior police officials.

In the primary investigation itself, it was known that around 200 persons were involved in the crime.

“The victim had made a statement before the Aluva court that she was exploited by over 200 people. However, only less than 50 persons have been arrested till now,” Achuthanandan said.

“It has been reported that the victim was exploited by politicians, including UDF leaders,” he alleged.

“The Home Ministry is now trying to hinder the investigation as some of the top UDF leaders could be trapped,” he alleged.

Former UDF Kalamassery Councillor had even complained to the Chief Minister about the slow pace of the case and the involvement of some politicians.
