The has taken over the investigation into the of the brother of leader and former K N Nehru in 2012, officials said today.

The development comes after the Madras High handed over the probe to the central agency in November last year rejecting the state CB-CID's plea for more time to crack the case.

Justice A M Basheer Ahamed of the bench had allowed a plea by the wife of slain leader K N Ramajeyam, seeking probe into the killing.

The was critical of the CB-CID, saying it had been seeking adjournments without any progress in the investigation though five years had elapsed.

Ramajeyam, 50, was found murdered on the banks of river in his home town Tiruchirappalli after he went for a morning walk on March 29, 2012.

He was found gagged and his hands and legs were tied.
