Thiruvananthapuram: The CJM court here on Friday dismissed the plea seeking further probe on violinist Balabhaskar’s death.

The court upheld CBI’s finding in the case that Balabhaskar and his daughter died due to rash and negligent driving.

Expressing his dismay over the ruling, Balabhaskar’s father KC Unni said that he will file an appeal with Kerala High Court against the judgement.

Unni also raised many allegations. According to him, the CBI did not investigate the case properly. His demands to reconstitute the probe team.

Unni reiterated the claim that gold smugglers were involved in Balabhaskar’s death.

The Crime Branch had termed the death an accident, and it was challenged by Balabhaskar's parents KC Unni and B Santhakumari. Following their request, the chief minister handed over the case to the CBI. The parents alleged that a gold smuggling gang in Thiruvananthapuram plotted the accident. However, the CBI probe ruled out such possibilities and reiterated the findings of the Crime Branch. The deceased’s family had approached the court and the development comes in wake of this.
