MADURAI: The Madras High Court bench here directed the CB-CID (Tiruchy) Deputy Superintendent of Police to file a counter affidavit on the status of the probe into the murder of Ramajayam, a leading real estate promoter and brother of former DMK Minister K N Nehru, over two years ago.

Ramajayam, who was also the chairman of the CARE group of colleges in Tiruchy, was abducted when he was on his morning walk on March 29, 2012 and his body was found near the bank of the River Cauvery at Sakarpalayam.

As the Thillai Nagar police in Tiruchy were unable to achieve any breakthrough, the investigation in the case was transferred to the Crime Branch CID (CB-CID).

Ramajayam’s widow R Latha moved the court stating that even now there has been no significant progress in the investigation despite the family members providing clues to the police. She alleged that the investigating team was leaking the information to the media and was spreading canards about her husband’s character saying he was involved in a double murder case.

Apprehending that the CB-CID would not conduct a fair investigation, she pleaded the court to transfer the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Hearing the plea, Justice R Mala directed the Tiruchy CB-CID to file its counter and adjourned the case to January 9,2015.
