Sessions Judge C Jayachandran will preside over the hearing from April 24 to June 6, according to the schedule.
According to Ajayan, the postmortem report stated the death was due to drowning.
Shibu was at the receiving end for not taking timely action in the case, even though Kevin’s relatives had filed a complaint at the Gandhi Nagar police station soon after the abduction.
The charge-sheet says that Kevin P Joseph, a Dalit-Christian from Kottayam, was kidnapped and murdered by a gang led by Sanu Chacko, brother of Kevin’s fiancee Neenu Chacko.
