The Kerala unit of the Congress on Wednesday demanded CBI enquiry into the double murder of two DYFI workers in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday night.

Ruling out the allegations against him in the twin murder case, Attingal MP Adoor Prakash demanded a CBI probe into the case for a proper enquiry as he has no trust in the state police.

He said that the police are under the control of the state government and the truth can be brought out only through an impartial investigation.

"I challenge the state government to refer the case to CBI and let the truth behind the political murders come out through a proper probe," said Prakash.

Welcoming any probe against him, Prakash reiterated that he had no connections with the murder attempt case of a DYFI leader Faisal. The Congress MP also said that he intervened in the reasonable problems of several people after they sought his help.

He also said that he or his party never justified the murders and there should be action against those involved in the case irrespective of their political affiliations.

Kerala PCC president Mullappalli Ramachandran had already demanded CBI investigation into the murder case.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) kept on alleging that Congress leadership was behind the double murder of the DYFI workers at Venjaramood near Thiruvananthapuram.

DYFI activists Midhilaj (30) and Muhammed Haq (24) were murdered while they were going to the former's house at Ozhukupara near Vembayam in Thiruvananthapuram on the eve of Onam.
