On 6 May, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the central government is ready for a CBI probe into the brutal rape and murder of a Dalit student of law in Kerala.
The incident is being probed. No arrests have been made. Three suspects, including two of the woman's neighbours, have been picked up for questioning.
The state authorities have pledged that all necessary steps will be taken to ensure that the culprit is nabbed.
