The CPI-M's women wing All-India Democratic Women's Federation took out a march to the state Assembly demanding a fresh probe into the Suryanelli gangrape case in view of the charge levelled against Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien by the victim.
The LDF opposition also kept up the issue by raising it in the state Assembly again, protesting the UDF government's stand that a re-investigation in the case was not possible. Addressing the marchers, AIDWA leaders T N Seema, MP, and K K Shylaja said the government's position in the case amounted to 'gross injustice' to the victim and her family as well as all the women in the country.
