Periya double murder case: CBI team inspects crime spot

Kasaragod: A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team on Tuesday recreated the crime scene of the double murder case in Periya.

Following Supreme Court rejecting state government’s appeal against the High Court order for a CBI probe into the Periya twin murder case, Crime Branch had earlier handed over the case files to the CBI.

The Crime Branch officials said the case diary and related files were handed over to the CBI.

The murder of two Youth Congress workers - Kripesh and Sarath Lal – at Periya in Kasaragod in February 2019 had been a bone of contention between CBI and Crime Branch after the latter refused to hand over the case files even after Kerala High Court ordered transferring of the case to the CBI.
