THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A convict in a double-murder case, who had jumped parole and was engaged in peddling ganja within  city limits, landed in custody on Tuesday. Hashim, 46, of Valiyathura was caught  by Thampanoor police while he was peddling the contraband near Valiyasala.

Hashim was serving a life term for murdering journalist Binulal and a police officer Vijayan during a robbery attempt at Overbridge in 1996. He was released on one-month parole from Viyyur Prison in August, but did not report back on time. 

The prisons officials had filed a report on the matter with the City police commissioner. A  subsequent probe found that the person was engaged in selling drugs in the city. It was during the follow-up operation that he was nabbed. Hashim was remanded in judicial custody and the prisons department was intimated of his arrest.
