Court to consider Jayarajan's bail plea on Tuesday
Kannur: Thalassery District Sessions Judge V G Anilkumar on Monday postponed hearing on the bail plea filed by CPM Kannur district secretary P Jayarajan to Tuesday. Jayarajan is on remand in Kathiroor Manor murder case. The court postponed the verdict saying it is not clear about certain matters in the case diary.
Meanwile, Jayarajan was admitted to Kannur district Ayurvedic hospital on Monday. Jayarajan was admitted to the hospital as there is inflammation on his knees and elbows. He will be taken back to the jail after treatment.
The CBI and the defendants had completed their arguments before the Thalassery sessions court on Saturday. CBI Prosecutor Advocate S Krishnakumar opposed the bail plea. The CBI contention is that the High Court had found prima facie evidence against Jayarajan while considering his anticipatory bail plea.
However, Jayarajan’s advocate K Vishvan argued that the court should examine whether there is truth in this.
He also said that the crime of conspiracy as per Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) Section 18 invoked against Jayarajan will not hold ground.
“Jayarajan is under police protection from 1997 onwards. The CBI is not revealing the place where Jayarajan hatched conspiracy and with whom he hatched the conspiracy. The court had allowed bail for other accused against whom the conspiracy charge was levelled.The same consideration should be given to Jayarajan also,” Jayarajan’s advocate argued.
Jayarajan’s advocate also said that the main witness in the case is the district leader of RSS and it was a pre-planned move to make Jayarajan an accused in the case.
The investigation team submitted the case diary before the court on Saturday. The court had criticised the team for not submitting the case diary early.
Jayarajan’s remand term ends on April 8.
