The CBI Special Court here on Thursday read out the chargesheet to the accused in the Paul M George murder case. All the 14 accused were present in the court.
Judge T S P Moosath posted the case to October 5 for scheduling the trial. The court had postponed the procedures five times owing to the absence of a few accused in the case. Last time, the court had said that arrest warrants would be issued in the name of those who fail to appear before the court during the next sitting.
The commencement of trial in the case has been delayed indefinitely as the accused failed to appear before the court every time the reading-out of chargesheet was scheduled.
The case was registered by the CBI on January 29, 2010 as per the directives of the High Court. Two separate chargesheets were filed in the case. The first chargesheet is for offences of criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, rioting and criminal intimidation. As per the chargesheet, the first accused Jayachandran, a goonda leader from Changanasserry and second accused Kaari Satheesh had stabbed Paul on the fateful night .
