President of Indian Rationalists Association Narendra Nayak said here on Sunday that the government should constitute a special investigation team (SIT) to probe into the murder of RTI activist Vinayak Baliga here five years ago. Speaking at a public meeting outside the house of Baliga on his fifth death anniversary, Mr. Nayak said that the conspirators in the murder case have not been arrested. There is a need for a high level probe into the murder. If the government can set up a SIT to probe into the alleged sex CD scandal involving a BJP MLA, why can’t it set up a SIT to probe into the murder of its own party activist, he asked. Earlier, Deshapremi Sanghatanegala Okkoota took out a procession from Venkataramana Temple on Car Street to the house of the slain activist.
