WALAYAR: A woman whose daughters were found dead, is fighting this years' Kerala state elections.
Dubbed as 'Walayar mother', she is contesting as a candidate from Dharmadam, the CPM fortress from where Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is standing for re-election.
Her two daughters, aged 11 and 9, were raped and found hanging. Due to a lapse in the police investigation, the men who were arrested were acquitted by court.
Walayar mother told the media that the government is protecting the police officers who subverted the investigation into the rape and murder of her children.
Kerala High Court found serious lapses in the probe, this year, and ordered a retrial and has been handed to the CBI.
Speaking to the media, she said that she has no hope in terms of winning the elections but no matter the outcome, she will continue her fight for justice.
