CBI to Probe Jayakrishnan Master’s Death
Thiruvananthapuram: The CBI will now investigate the murder of Yuva Morcha leader Jayakrishnan Master. The move comes, following the decision taken by state government of Kerala. The declaration regarding the same will be issued soon.
However, the handing over of the case to CBI is being resented by police officials. There is a wide spread concern about certain senior police officers being in the list of wrong doers for hijacking the case. But the UDF government is of the view that the CBI wilI undertake the investigations, keeping in mind, the current political scenario.
The call for a reinvestigation in Jayakrishnan Master’s case came into light with the statements given by TK Rejeesh, the prime suspect of TP Chandrashekharan murder case. The Bharatiya Janata Party has also categorically stated that the investigations should be handed over to the CBI. An appeal has also been given by Jayakrishnan Master’s mother Kausalya Devi, who met Chief Minister Oomen Chandy and Home Minister Thiruvanchiyoor Radhakrishnan and requested for the same.
Rejeesh has stated before the investigating team that amongst those arrested, only one of them is the real culprit, in the Jayakrishnan Master murder case. Along with Acharuparambathu Pradeep, he was part of the group that barged into the classroom and hacked Jayakrishnan Master in a brutal murder. The party office had issued a list of the crime doers and police acted according to that list.
Jayakrishnan Master was brutally murdered on 1 December, 1999 while he was taking class. In connection with the same, police made relevant arrests as well. However, 2 of them were set free in absence of conclusive evidence. One among them, Sajeevan, committed suicide. The others were sentenced to death by Sessions Court. But this was terminated to life imprisonment by the appeal court. When the court reached Supreme Court, all of them, with the exception of Pradeep, were set free. However, before his term came to an end, Pradeep also walked out, a free man. His life imprisonment term was cut short, following the recommendations made by P Jayaraj, P Sasi, who happen to be part of the jail advisory board. Pradeep was set free during the tenure of the previous LDF government.

Did You Know?
A vast body of scientific information is hidden in ancient Hindu scriptures and Sanskrit texts. One such book is the celebrated commentary on the Rigveda by Sayana (c. 1315-1387), a minister in the court of King Bukka I of the Vijayanagar Empire in South India.
Sayana comments on a verse in Rigveda that Sun traverses 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesha. Yojana is an ancient Indian unit of length and nimesa is the unit of time. Upon conversion in modern units, this yields the value of 186,000 miles per second. Now it is well known that this is the velocity of light. Why would Sayana call this the velocity of Sun? It turns out that Sayana was following the ancient Indian tradition of codifying the knowledge. In this code Sun represents light.
In the modern times the speed of light was first determined in 1675 by Roemer. Until then light was taken to travel with infinite velocity. Even Newton assumed so.
