According to RK Rajendra, former member MHRC, all who are fighting for justice in the killing must mount pressure and demand clarification of the motive behind the killing from the party involved.
RK Rajendra further proposed the need to hand over the investigation to an independent agency like the National Investigation Agency (NIA) adding the prevailing situation in the state has arisen out of corruption, he observed.
