HC will monitor ice cream case investigation

kerala High Court Kochi: The Kerala High Court declared that it will monitor the investigation into the sensational ice-cream parlour sex scandal case. The court has also rejected the plea for CBI enquiry at this juncture. As per the court findings, the allegations raised by V S Achuthanandan were not factual are merely general accusations based on his own apprehensions and doubts.

The government has brought before the courts notice the developments in the investigation procedure of the case. They claim to have questioned 85 witnesses and seized 60 documents pertaining to the case. The government informed that the investigation procedure will be completed within 90 day’s time. The final judgement on V S petition would be declared on December 22, 2011.

Opposition Leader VS Achuthanandan had filed a plea in Kerala High Court demanding CBI enquiry into the sensational ice cream case on September 2, 2011. The case was registered on the basis of claims by K A Rauf, a relative of state minister PK Kunhalikutty that he had tried to influence witnesses in the ice cream parlour sex scandal. Rauf had alleged that Kunhalikutty used money power and him (Rauf) to influence witnesses, prosecutors, social workers and judicial officers to escape from the ice cream parlour sex case.

VS claimed in his plea that the current enquiry team inquiring into the ice cream parlour sex scandal team was not conducting its work efficiently and had made no significant progress. According to Achuthanandan, during the past seven months, no investigation was done in the case registered. The special enquiry team was appointed by the former LDF ministry. VS states that, the progress in the case has slowed down after the change in ministry.
