THIEUVANANTHAPURAM: The CBI court here will consider the bail application of Kaari Satheesh, the second accused in the sensational Paul Muthoot George murder case, on Thursday, as there was confusion regarding the bail availed of by the thirteen other accused in the case.

 While the CBI prosecutor opposed the bail plea on Tuesday, the CBI special Judge T S P Moosath observed that there is no ground for denying the bail.

 The bail of Satheesh was cancelled as he violated the bail conditions after he was charged in a case for threatening an approver in the case. But he was acquitted from the case for lack of evidence.

 The CBI prosecutor wanted to know on what ground Satheesh would be granted bail to which the court inquired about the charges under which he was in custody.  The confusion occurred due to the two chargesheets filed separately by the CBI  for murder and conspiracy in a single crime and both the chargesheets featured the same persons. Hence, the court postponed the hearing to Thursday to get a clear picture on the bail granted to the other thirteen accused.

 The fourteen accused including Satheesh were given bail by the Ernakulam CBI court  on April 17, 2010, while the bail of Satheesh was cancelled on August 13, 2010.
