Walayar case: No faith in appeal by police, says mother of victims
Palakkad: In connection with the Walayar rape case, where two minor victims died, the mother of the girls said that she has no faith in the appeal filed by police. She was responding to reports that government was filing an appeal against the court order which let off the accused.
“The accused were let off due to lapses in the police investigation. If the same police, which is investigating the case now, is filing the appeal, I have no faith in it. I will stand with those who guarantee that the accused will not be allowed to go free. There must be a reinvestigation,” she said.
Meanwhile, there in an increasing demand for a reinvestigation in the case. The demand comes after DIG informed that police will file an appeal against the POCSO court order.
