Thiruvananthapuram: CPI-M led LDF opposition in Kerala on Thursday staged a walkout in protest against Speaker G Karthikeyan's refusal to entertain an adjournment motion on a case concerning the suicide of two girls, in which a minister was allegedly involved.

Replying to the notice for the motion, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said there was no connection between the two cases (scandal and suicide) and Opposition allegation in this regard was baseless.

Chandy said the suicides happened in 1996 and the LDF ruled the state nine years after that and it failed to produce any evidence to connect the two cases.

Post-mortem of one of the bodies showed there was no proof of sexual harassment, he said adding the body was so mutilated that an autopsy could not be conducted.

Chandy also denied charges that Kozhikode Assistant Police Commissioner K Radhakrishnan Pillai had submitted a report to the Judicial Magistrate Court on Wednesday stating that no further probe was required.

Industries Minister P K Kunhalikutty, whose name has been linked to the ice cream sex scandal, said Achuthanandan, Rauf (a relative of Kunhalikutty), N K Abdul Aziz, who had filed a petition in the court, and some media persons were trying to implicate him in the case.

Two pre-degree students in Kozhikode committed suicide by jumping in front of a train in 1996.
