pinarayi-vijayan-assembly Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said there is a concerted attempt by the opposition to raise unwanted issues with an aim to tarnish the image of the CPM and its leadership.

Thiruvananthapuram: Once again, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has turned down the Opposition call for a CBI probe into the murder of Youth Congress leader Shuhaib in Kannur on February 12.

Addressing the assembly, Pinarayi Vijayan also said that the special investigation team (SIT) was moving in the right direction.

Necessary evidence had not been obtained so far to impose UAPA in the murder of Shuhaib in Mattannoor, Pinarayi said.

No complaint has been received from anyone against the police investigation. All the accused will be nabbed, he said.

However, the CM on Wednesday denied this and said the minister did not mention about the CBI probe.

Chief minister also informed the assembly that after the LDF government came to power, 9 political murders had been witnessed in Kannur. The activists of CPM, BJP and SDPI are behind the murders, Pinarayi said in reply to Anoop Jacob's question.

Strict action will be taken against those trying to free accused from police stations and would not allow any illegal activities, he added.
