THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Amidst the rampant reports of sexual assault against women, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan made it clear that his government will not remain a mere spectator to crimes committed against women. ''No accused will be let off the hook'', he asserted, calling for a constant vigil by all political parties and the common society to ensure protection of women.

Meanwhile, he admitted that police had undermined the gravity of the death of the minor girls who committed suicide in a span of 52 days in Walayar. ''It was really unfortunate that the two girls have become victims. Police is now moving efficiently. All those involved in the crime are in the police net. Police is not acting in women torture cases in a lackadaisical manner,'' CM Pinarayi Vijayan said.

He also said that DGP T P Senkumar was not removed from the top post owing to Jisha case. The DGP was removed due to his inefficiency to function at such a position, he added. ''The people have been convinced about that from his actions later on,” the Chief Minister remarked.
