The preliminary hearing on the chargesheet against Beecha Jaganna, alias Suguna, for propagating Maoist ideology and harbouring top Maoist leader Malla Raji Reddy in December 2008, will start before the Ernakulam CBI Special Court on May 13.

CBI Special Judge S Vijayakumar issued the directive and gave her a chance to appoint an advocate for the case.

The case was transferred to the special court after the police registered a case against her for taking part in the activities of a banned organisation.

On February 15, the police had filed a chargesheet against Beecha, one of the four suspected Maoists, for allegedly attempting to wage war against the nation, before the Ernakulam principal sessions court.

Roopesh of Thrissur, his wife Shyna and Malla Raji Reddy of Andhra Pradesh were the accused in the case along with Beecha.

Roopesh and Shyna have been accused of harbouring Maoist leader Malla Raji Reddy.

They allegedly helped Reddy and his wife get a house on rent in Perumbavoor using fake identities.

The suspected Maoists first came under the police radar when the owner of the house in which they were living filed a complaint about a theft there.
