Kochi: The kin of SFI district committee member Abhimanyu, who was killed at Ernakulam's Maharaja's College on July 2, 2018, has alleged that there has been a serious lapse in investigation.
In a Facebook post of electricity minister MM Mani on the movie Nan Petta Makan, which depicts the life of Abhimanyu, the victim’s uncle had lashed out in anger in the comment section, stating that there was a severe lapse in the probe of the case.
He stated that the murderers had not been arrested yet and that the investigating officers were not answering calls of Abhimanyu's kin. He added that it has been one year since the death of Abhimanyu and the family does not know the status of the investigation. He requested the minister to reply to his comment.
