Addressing mediapersons here on Thursday, June 22 he said, "Four teams have been formed who are broadly investigating the murder case. We will not spare the culprits and will see that they are nabbed at the earliest. We have got certain clues releated to the case and our teams are investigating all the incidents starting from the Vitla incident. We are thoroughly investigating if there is any rowdy element involved in the murder case."

When queried about the planned protest at BC Road on June 25, he said, "We do not know much about it. Section 144 has been clamped till June 27 and more than five people should not be assembling in a single place. However, there is exemption for religious programmes."
