PALAKKAD: The accused in the case related to the sexual harassment and mysterious deaths of two minor dalit sisters at Walayar should be convicted, said their mother. There is no use in police probing the case again as they committed serious lapses in the probe. She had told the police that she once witnessed the elder girl being sexually abused by one of the accused. She had also alleged that the police did not provide her with the details of the autopsy.

She reacted at a time when the police is moving the court challenging the verdict. The police will move the court against the verdict of the POCSO court in Palakkad acquitting the three citing lack of sufficient evidence.

The police decided to move the court amid strong criticism that lapses in the police probe and lack of evidence led to the escape of the accused. Elder sister aged 13 was found hanging inside the house on January 13, 2017, and the younger one aged 9, in the same room on March 4. The post mortem report mentioned sexual abuse of the two. But the police findings were that the two committed suicide.

When the incident stoked a controversy, the case was handed over to DYSP narcotic cell. A post-mortem found that the two were sexually abused. Later the sub-inspector was suspended and department-level action was taken against the circle inspector and DySP.
