Close on the heels of release of CPM Onchiyam area committee secretary C H Asokan on bail by the High Court, Kozhikode District and Sessions Judge P Ubaid on Friday granted conditional bail to CPM Thalasseri area committee member P P Ramakrishnan, who was accused in the case pertaining to the murder attempt against T P Chandrasekharan way back in 2009.
Granting bail to Ramakrishnan, Judge P Ubaid ordered that the accused should not enter the limits of Vadakara taluk and Kannur district except for compliance with the condition of appearing before the investigation officer.
Ramakrishnan’s counsel also produced the High Court order granting bail to C H Asokan in the same case a few days ago. The Court also asked Ramakrishnan to execute a bond for Rs 25,000 with two solvent sureties.
Ramakrishnan of Choodikotta, Mahe, was arrested based on statement by Sijith alias Annan, one of the members of the killer-gang, that five persons including CPM Onchiyam area secretary C H Ashokan, member K K Krishnan, CPM Kunnummakara local committee member C R Ramachandran, had met at his house in Mahe to hatch the conspiracy to kill Chandrashekaran in 2009.
Vadakara Judicial First Class Magistrate has rejected the bail application moved by Karayi Rajan, an accused in the Chandrasekharan murder case. The Court also remanded other accused including Kirmani Manoj, K C Ramachandran, T K Rajeesh, Ajesh and Abhinesh in judicial custody till August 3.
