Kasaragod, Mar 3 : All India Congress Committee (AICC) President Rahul Gandhi will visit the houses of two victims of Periya double murder at Kallyot near here on March 12.
Two youth congress workers - Kripesh and Sarath Lal- were hacked to death allegedly by CPI(M) activists in last month. The case, originally investigated by the local police, had been entrusted to the Crime Branch recently.
However, the head of the investigating team, a Superintendent of Police, besides a Deputy Superintendent of Police and a Circle inspector in the team were replaced from the investigation on Friday. This has attracted criticism from the Congress leadership, who have since long been demanding a CBI probe into the case.
The local Youth Congress sources said Mr Gandhi will reach Periya via road from Mangalore airport at around 1100 hours on March 12 and would visit the houses of Kripesh and Sarath Lal.
The Congress Supremo is likely to make it to Wayanad also, to pay a visit to the CRPF martyr V V Vasanthkumar's house in Lakkidi, sources added. (UNI)
