Another death threat targeting CPM leader P Jayarajan
Kannur: Another letter threatening to kill CPM Kannur District Secretary P Jayarajan within a month’s time has emerged. It is the second such letter in three months.
The latest letter was addressed to Kannur Town CI and is titled ‘The Keeper of the Order.’ The Town Police have registered a case though the origin of the letter is still unknown.
The letter reads: “We have decided to finish him off within a month. One person has been assigned to watch his movements. If the time and place are suitable, the job will be done. Only this will bring peace in Kannur. Those participating in the public functions attended by this person should keep some distance so that they do not get hurt.”
The first letter emerged in August after Jayarajan criticised the activities of the Islamic State in Kerala. That was sent to Jayarajan directly, which was handed over to the police.
The District Police Chief has directed to intensify patrolling in the area and on his house premises in the wake of the death threat. The police will consider beefing up security for Jayarajan.
