Balabhaskar and family
Thiruvananthapuram: While a court here was considering the plea filed by the violinist Balabhaskar’s father, the prosecution clarified that no mysteries could be found in connection with the death of Balabhaskar. The prosecution reported to the court that everything, including the mobile phone of violinist Balabhaskar, was thoroughly examined. For investigating the allegations raised by the relatives, they should bring evidence for it, added the prosecution.
Earlier, a CBI probe had found that the death of Balabhaskar was due to a car accident. Balabhaskar’s father Unni had submitted a petition in the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in Thiruvananthapuram against this.
Following the car accident, Balabhaskar’s mobile phone was received by his friend Prakashan Thampi. Later, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) took Prakashan Thampi into custody, in connection with a gold smuggling case and sent Balabhaskar’s phone for a detailed examination. However, the CBI had not probed over this phone during the investigation, alleged Balabhaskar’s father in the plea.
While the court considered the plea last time, CBI had requested to grant further time to submit details regarding the mobile phone. But the court denied this request and ordered to clarify the progress of the investigation on that day itself.
Following this, the prosecution asserted that the CBI investigation of Balabhaskar’s death was accurate. The prosecution noted that a probe was also conducted over the mobile phone and nothing unusual could be found from it. Several doubts might be existing regarding the death of Balabhaskar in the public domain. But it is not practical to carry out an investigation to brush aside all of them, observed the prosecution.
The case has been reserved to deliver the final verdict.
