In his petition, Jais John James submitted that his sister Jesna Maria James has been missing from March 22 and a Special Investigation Team was constituted by the state police to investigate the case.
He alleged that the SIT could not make headway to trace his sister, a second-year B Com student at St Dominics College, Kanjirappally.
The petitioner submitted that representations were filed before the state government, praying that the probe be handed over to the CBI. However there was no positive response, he said.
The petitioner said it was unfortunate to note that the state government had not taken any earnest efforts to trace out the missing person.
