Indrajit said all angles - be it Naxal or Hindu extremist - should be investigated in a thorough probe.

He said the Prime Minister could not react on everything.

He also denied he and his sister were involved in a property dispute. Also, he said his Government has an "open mind" to an investigation by the CBI, a demand made by the slain journalist's family.
