Thiruvananthapuram : The kerala High Court told CBI to take over investigation of the Shuhaib murder case. The order has come in response to the plea filed by Shuhaib’s parents. Pronouncing the judgement, Justice B Kemal Pasha said that the CBI should probe it as a fresh case in order to bring out the truth. The court felt that the police investigation is not satisfactory and made some harsh criticism against the government.

When the court asked if the conspiracy behind the incident was clear, the government replied that a detailed probe will be held. In this context, Justice Kemal Pasha asked if the conspiracy behind political murders in Kannur has ever been disclosed. The court also asked if the government does not want the court to hear the case. The case diary will handed over to the Thiruvananthapuram CBI unit.
