The 21st Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) denounces the cold-blooded custodial killing of the five under trial-Muslim prisoners while being taken to court from Warangal jail to Hyderabad by the police in Telangana. The handcuffed prisoners were shot dead inside the police van midway, apparently as an act of revenge for the death of two police personnel earlier by SIMI activists. The State Government has appointed an SIT enquiry, which is nothing but a brazen attempt to mislead the people and protect the police involved in these murders.
