The charge sheet in the T P Chandrasekharan murder case will be submitted before August 10. Sources with the police maintained that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the case is engaged in preparing the chargesheet and the investigation into the conspiracy hatched to murder Chandrasekharan in 2009 would be continued after the submission of the charge sheet.
The SIT had already decided to file separate chargesheets against the killers and key conspirators, those who were arrested for providing shelter to the assailants, harbouring the accused and securing SIM cards for the killers. Sources added that SIT had received direction from the Home Department to arrest anyone if found adequate evidence to prove his involvement in hatching the conspiracy. As the timeline has not been set to wind up the probe, further investigation will continue, added sources. So far, the SIT has arrested 80 persons in connection with the murder of Chandrasekharan. Around 100 pieces of evidence including vehicles, swords, mobile phones and SIM cards are seized.
Meanwhile, sources maintained that Left Co-ordination Committee president Adv P Kumaran Kutty would be appointed as special prosecutor for conducting the trial in the court.
The state government will take the final decision on the appointment of the special prosecutor soon. The SIT had proposed the name of Congress leader from Kasargod, C K Sreedharan as the special prosecutor. But K K Rama, wife of the slain leader, and RMP leaders have already suggested Kumaran Kutty for the post.
