New Delhi: The Supreme Court here on Monday dismissed the bail plea of the prime accused in the 2005 Kanichukulangara triple murder case.

Unni, the prime accused, was serving a life term over the murder of Everest Chit Fund owner T G Remesh and his sister Latha, their car driver Shamsudheen. As per the case, the accused conspired the murder over business rivlary. The accused had rammed a lorry into the car in which Remesh and others were travelling. The accident took place on the old NH-47 at Kanichukulangara in Alappuzha.

Unni approached the apex court requesting bail by citing that he was serving a life term since 2006. However, Supreme Court stated that the situation in the case was different and granting bail would be as equal as mocking the legal system in the country. A bench of Justice KM Joseph and Justice Hrishikesh Roy heard the petition.

Meanwhile, a petition filed by Unni, and other accused, challenging the Kerala High Court verdict on life sentence, is also before the Supreme Court.

In his plea, Unni requested the Supreme Court to grant bail untill the pronouncement of its verdict on the pettion against HC order.
