Chennai : Rebel AIADMK leader and head of AMMK, TTV Dhinakaran on Thursday the silence of the CBI on its probe into Pollachi sexual abuse cum blackmail case. It is over 40 days since the case was transferred to the central probe agency, but it is shocking that so far no progress has been made.
The CBCID of Tamil Nadu police informed the Madras High Court on Wednesday that it had no information from the CBI on the status of investigation, whether it had taken it up or not. Which is why, the CBCID is proceeding with investigations.
First CBCID was investigating the case and then it was transferred to the central body. If after 40 days no progress has been made in the case, Dhinakaran said and added that he wondered if the silence or absence of information had anything to do with the fact that the ruling AIADMK here had an alliance with the BJP that is leading the NDA government at the centre.
Dhinakaran said the state government owed an explanation to the people of Tamil Nadu ad it must clearly inform which organisation was probing the Pollachi case and at what stage the probe had reached now. Has there been any problem in transferring the case to CBI, he wondered.
The CBCID of Tamil Nadu police on Wednesday told the Madras High Court that it had not yet heard from the CBI on the probe and hence it was continuing the probe itself. This is being done to ensure that no evidence is lost, the CBCID told the Madras High Court.
