HIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The CBI should probe former Revenue Minister K.M. Mani's involvement in the attempts to scuttle the investigation into Sister Abhaya murder case, activist Jomon Puthenpurackal said on Wednesday.

He told a news conference here that it was under Mani's pressure that the then Kottayam RDO S.G.K. Kishore had ordered the burning of vital evidence related to the investigation on June 16, 1993.

Jomon said he had mentioned this in his statement to the CBI team.

According to Jomon, Mani has not uttered a word on behalf of a proper investigation into Sister Abhaya's death during the past 16 years despite Abhaya's home being in Areekkara in the Pala Assembly Constituency.
