Mangaluru, Oct 31, 2018: The family of the slain RTI activist Vinayak Baliga has decided to file a review petition with regard to its plea to conduct a narco analysis test of Naresh Shenoy, the prime accused in the case.
Supreme Court advocate Ravindra Kamath who is the legal counsel of the Baliga family has said that this review petition is essential to bring out the truth in the case.
Meanwhile, eminent rationalist Prof Narendra Nayak who has been strongly supporting the Vinayak Baliga family in its fight for justice has questioned why the accused who have been stating that they have not erred, fear narco analysis test. He said it has been decided to file a petition again seeking narco analysis test and pointed out that case has not been thoroughly probed. He also stressed the need to convince the judiciary of the need for a re-probe into the case.
Vinayak Baliga was brutally hacked to death right near his residence close by Kalakunj during the wee hours of March 21, 2016.
