Terming the demand as 'legitimate' Polit Bureau member of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), Brinda Karat supported the plea seeking return of Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru's body to his family. While addressing reporters in Rohtak, Karat said that it could not be ruled out that the matter was being politicized. In the meanwhile Karat also called on the Congress led UPA government to take a strong step against Italy for refusing to send back the under trial marines who killed two Indian fishermen.
