Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday came down heavily on Indian Union Muslim League legislator and former Public Works Minister V.K. Ebrahim Kunju while considering his bail plea in the case of relating to corruption in the construction of the decommissioned flyover bridge at Palarivattom in Kochi. If one can contest in an election process, the person should be ready to accept jail too, HC noted.

Ebrahim Kunju had earlier approached the court seeking bail. HC had then said that the plea can be considered after he is moved to jail. Kunju, who is currently hospitalized, again moved HC seeking concession in this condition. Following this, HC sought state government’s response over his plea.



Meanwhile, Kunju had submitted another application seeking permission to contest in Muslim Educational Society election at the Vigilance court.

The government pointed out his application to contest the election and also his claim of being unwell mentioned in the bail plea at the court.

Following this HC severely criticized Kunju and said that if he is ready to contest in election, he should be ready to go to jail too.

Court also noted that contradictory claims have been mentioned in the bail plea and asked him not to approach court with such matters.

The bail plea will be considered again on Friday.
