Ebullient Congress MP K Sudhakaran has landed in trouble with an allegation raised by his former driver and municipal councillor Prasanth Babu that K Sudhakaran  was behind the attempt to murder CPM central committee member  E P Jayarajan 16 years ago.

Sudhakaran was quick to fend off the attack by saying that Babu had been nursing a grudge against him as he was not given ticket to contest as councillor  for a second time owing to corruption charges.

But CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan seized upon the opportunity to embarrass the Congress by demanding a thorough probe into the disclosures.

E P  Jayarajan was shot at by a two-member quotation gang, Vikramchalil and Dinesan, in Andhra Pradesh, as the CPM leader was returning to Kerala by train after attending the party congress in 1996.

The bullets hit  his neck but he had a miraculous escape as he received expert medical attention in Chennai a few hours after the incident.
