Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday assured all support to ensure justice to the family of Soumya, who was allegedly raped and murdered after being pushed out from a moving train in Thrissur district in February 2011.
Vijayan gave the assurance when Sumathi, mother of Soumya, met him at his official chamber here to express her concern over the recent Supreme Court verdict, commuting the death sentence awarded to Govindachamy, the lone accused in the sensational rape and murder case.
“I am satisfied with my meeting with the Chief Minister. I am going home content,” Sumathi told after meeting the Chief Minister along with her son Sumesh.
Vijayan later said the grieving mother’s sorrow and concern is being shared by all and such incidents should not happen in the future.
“In the wake of the recent Supreme Court verdict in the Soumya case, her mother Sumathi came to my office to meet me and share things. We will do everything to ensure justice for Soumya,” he said.
“Such things should not happen in future. We share the sorrow and concern of that mother”, he said.
