Kerala Assy adjourned over suicide of two minor Dalit girls

Agency News

Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 28 : Kerala Assembly was adjourned for the day as the Opposition Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) disrupted the proceedings following the denial of an adjournment motion seeking discussion over the alleged suicide of two minor Dalit girls at Attappalam near Walayar in Palakkad.

Seeking the leave of the House to move the adjournment motion seeking discussion over the unnatural death of the two girls, Shafi Parambil of Congress said the Dalit family was denied justice by the ruling CPI(M) party.

In both the death cases, the local CPI(M) party men were involved, but they were acquitted by a POSCO court due to lackadaisical attitude of the police in collecting proper evidence against them.

Seeking a CBI probe into the case, the Congress member said Chairman of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Advocate N Rajesh, and his junior also had appeared before the court on behalf of the accused proving a clear interference from the ruling party to help the culprits.

In his reply, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the Government will not support those who committed the crime and will look into other options of probing the case by investigation agencies including the CBI.

Following the Chief Minister's reply, Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan denied permission to move the adjournment motion. This provoked the Opposition members who entered the Well of the House and disrupted the proceedings.

Later, the Speaker rushed through the business listed and adjourned the House for the day.(UNI)
