CBI to interrogate Jayarajan today
Thalassery: The CBI will interrogate CPM Kannur district former secretary P Jayarajan, who has been charged in the Kathiroor Manoj murder case, on Wednesday.
CBI DySP Hari Om Prakash and team will question Jayarajan at Kozhikode Medical College.
Meanwhile, Jayarajan will be discharged on Wednesday. He may be shifted to Kannur Central Jail.
Earlier in the day, the Thalassery Principal Sessions Court issued the directive to send Jayarajan to CBI custody for three days from Wednesday. The court directed that the superintendent of the Kannur jail must make all arrangements for the interrogation.
The probe officials have been told to interrogate Jayarajan between 9 am and 6 pm. The court dismissed Jayarajan’s request to have a doctor and a lawyer during the time of interrogation.
Manoj (42), a district functionary of RSS, was hacked to death in politically-volatile Kathiroor in Kannur district on September 1, 2014 allegedly by a group of CPI-M workers. Manoj was an accused in a case related to an unsuccessful attempt on Jayarajan's life in 1999.
