HC order a blow to the arrogance of communist party: AK Antony
New Delhi: Senior Congress leader AK Antony said Wednesday that the High Court order asking CBI to probe the murder of Youth Congress activist Shuhaib is an order that will put an end to the political murders happening in Kannur.
The HC order, which is against political murders, is also a setback for the arrogance of communist party in Kerala and is an embarrassment to the government, Antony said.
“Minister AK Balan, who reached Kannur on the second day after the murder as chief minister's representative, had said that the party and the government have nothing to hide over the murder. He had also said that the government is ready to order a CBI probe into the case. However, the government backtracked from this decision,” Antony said.
