THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has urged the Maharashtra Government to probe immediately the alleged murder of Ajilal, a native of Changanassery, in Mumbai on June 18.

In a letter sent to his Maharashtra counterpart R. R. Patil on Monday, he called for arresting those behind it. The Minister said that Ajilal had appeared for an interview and made a payment of Rs.28,000 for a job in Singapore through Bushra International of Kurla in Mumbai. As he could not leave on the day fixed for the purpose, he approached the agency which gave some excuses. At one stage, he had verbal exchanges with Mansur Suhail Sheikh who ran the agency and the latter was said to have throttled him to death. Even though the accused was taken into custody, the arrest was not recorded.
