CBI special crime unit to probe Sreejeev’s death
Kochi: CBI has decided to investigate the case relating to alleged custodial death of Sreejeev. The Special Crime Unit of Thiruvananthapuram is in charge of the investigation. The order has reached Thiruvananthapuram from the CBI Joint Director’s office in Chennai.
It will take about 3 weeks to get the direction from Delhi to Chennai and to issue the order. But the order was issued immediately considering the emergency situation. Thiruvananthapuram Special Branch has sent a letter to the crime branch which presently investigate the case, demanding the case records. CBI plans to register the FIR as soon as the case records are received.
The issue had been taken up by the social media as Sreejeev’s brother Sreejith has been staging a sit-in protest in front of the secretariat for the past two and a half years. Sreejith started the protest since the CBI refused to take further actions in the case.
