The BJP district unit has sought re-institution of the judicial probe into the circumstances that led to the November 2009 violence in Kasaragod that claimed two lives.

With the CBI giving a clean chit to the then Superintendent of Police Ramadas Pothen, who was held responsible for the killing of an IUML sympathizer after he shot from his service revolver to quell the mob, the government should re-institute the disbanded judicial probe, BJP district general secretary K. Sreekanth told a press conference here.
