The meeting, held under the banner of the Left-backed socio-cultural outfit Platform for Education Literature Culture, demanded an independent probe preferably by a retired Supreme Court judge into the death of Fr Stan.

Calling his death “institutional murder”, playwright-director Sen said: “If the Centre has nothing to hide, it should allow judicial inquiry.”
