 The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probing into the Unnithan murder attempt case will file a supplementary chargesheet before the Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate Court in the next two days.

 The investigating team will hold a meeting with the CJM on Thursday in this regard.

 According to a CBI official, the chargesheet was prepared based on a revelation made by Container Santhosh who turned an approver in the case.

 The CJM had recorded his statement.

 “The chargesheet will name Crime Branch DySP Abdul Rasheed as the key accused in the case.

 DySP Santhosh Nair will also be included.

 The other police officers involved in saving Abdul Rasheed would feature in the chargesheet.

 So far, statements of more than 50 persons have been taken in the case,” the CBI official said.

 Though the CBI has interrogated several police officers in connection with the case, no arrests are likely to be made.

 “The investigation reveals the passive involvement of more CB officials in the case.

 This would be mentioned in the chargesheet.

 But the arrests are not required.

 They tried to save Rasheed after being misled by him,” the CBI official said
