Kerala orders probe into knife mystery in Muthoot case

 
The police have not yet denied the news report that a circle inspector of the Alappuzha north police station had asked a blacksmith to make the “S”  shaped knife.

As reported earlier, a senior police official had told newsmen two days after the murder that an “S” shaped weapon was used to commit the crime. Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, who is at the centre of the controversy for the alleged links of his son to criminals linked to the murder, claimed in the assembly that the government had nothing to hide in the matter and that the guilty would be brought to book. He said south zone ADGP Chandrasekhar would investigate the matter.

However, an agitated Opposition UDF accused the minister of trying to torpedo investigations and gave notice for an adjournment motion on the issue. The UDF legislators who trooped to the well of the House when the Speaker rejected their demand later staged a walkout in protest.

Meanwhile, Om Prakash and Puthenpalam Rajesh, who accompanied Paul on the night of the murder surrendered before a court in Tirunelveli on Tuesday. The duo, who have been absconding since August 22, surrendered in another case registered in 2004 under the Vanchiyoor police station here. The police here are expected to secure their custody on Wednesday.
