Puducherry, May 11 : Hailing the CBI for arresting the culprit in the murder of Jayaraman, a data entry operator of the Pondicherry University, the Federation for People’s Rights here today urged the CBI officials to arrest all those involved in the crime.
In a release here, Federation Secretary G Sugumaran pointed out that Jayaraman was murdered in 2008 for bringing to light the mark sheet scam at the university.
The CBI had yesterday arrested an employee of the examination wing of the university Kanniyappan and remanded him to custody.
The arrest of Kanniyappan has brought a ray of hope that justice would be rendered in this case, he added.
Jayaraman had brought to light the mark sheet scandal at the university, following which he was found murdered with his hands and legs tied, in a bush in 2008.
As there was no progress in the case with the local police, the case was handed over to the CBI.
The CBI had already arrested Kanniyappan in connection with the mark sheet scandal and he is now on bail.
