BJP state president K Surendran visited the parents on Monday morning. He has alleged Surendran alleged that Government is trying to influence the parents. "The victim's parents visited the Chief Minister on my instructions and he has offered all support. Why did the Chief minister step back from his promise? The Government and police are sabotaging the case," said Surendran.Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala also visited the parents. Chennithala said that it is an insult to Kerala and what is the difference between Uttar Pradesh and Kerala.

"What is the difference between Hathras and Walayar. The incident that happened in Hathras also happened in the land of Kerala where there are cultured and literate people with high sense of democratic rights. The culprits are being protected by the Government," said Chennithala. Two Dalit minor sisters were sexually abused and found hanging in the shed where they were lived in three months gap in 2017.
