Kerala High Court on Friday sought the view of state government on the bail plea of CPM Panoor area committee member P K Kunhanandan, the alleged mastermind behind the murder of T P Chandrasekharan. Justice N K Balakrishnan issued the directive and posted the case to July 30.
According to the petitioner there is no specific allegation against him in the conspiracy and he has been arrayed as an accused owing to political interference with a view to tarnish the image of the CPM. So far more than 50 CPM activists have been arrested in the case. No impartial investigation has been conducted, the petitioner said. During every stage of investigation, there was political interference. The police are dancing in tune with the leaders in power, Kunhanandan said.
