kannur:  The District and Sessions Court in Thalassery on Tuesday postponed the hearing on anticipatory bail plea filed by CPM district secretary P Jayarajan in the Kathiroor Manoj murder case to January 18. District Judge

V G Anil Kumar postponed the hearing on the plea filed by the CMP leader after receiving a notice served by the CBI asking him to appear before it for interrogation in connection with the murder case.

The plea submitted by Jayarajan’s advocate K Vishwam stated that the petitioner was willing to appear before the CBI. It sought anticipatory bail citing that there were chances for the CBI to arrest and torture the leader.

The court will send notice to the CBI seeking its response in this matter and verdict will be pronounced only after considering the response. 

Responding to media persons, Jayarajan’s counsel said there was no anxiety. There are no chances to summon Jayarajan till a decision is taken on his plea. “The case was planned with political motives and there is no evidence against him,” the counsel said.
