CB-CID chief holds review meeting

Covai Post Network


The progress made in the probe to nab the killers of Hindu Munnani functionary, C. Sasikumar, three months ago in the city, came up for discussion in the review meeting held today by the CB-CID Inspector-General of Police, Mahesh Kumar Agarwal.

With no major breakthrough in nabbing the murderers, Agarwal interacted with the members of Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing the murder on the night of September 22, police sources said.

The case was handed over to the CB-CID, five days after the murder, which resulted in communal tension, arson and loot, during the funeral procession the next day.

Stating that the meeting was a routine one held at regular intervals, the sources refused to elaborate further on the meeting and the progress in the case.

A four-member gang, on two motorcycles had hacked Sasikumar to death, after waylaying his motorcycle near his house in Thudiyalur, around 10.30 p.m.
