KANNUR:The chances of CPM Leader P Jayarajan being arraigned in the Manoj murder case looms large as the final report submitted by the CBI on the said case has implicated Jayarajan’s close links with the main accused in the murder.

Though the CBI, which submitted the report in the District Sessions court, has not formally indicted the leader, the report has established his links with the key accused in Manoj murder case. The CBI report pointed out that the murder was plotted close on the heels of a massive exodus of CPM workers to BJP.  Manoj was one of the accused involved in the attack on P Jayarajan. He was also accused in many attack cases on CPM activists. The CBI report states that “besides to prevent the flow of CPM party workers of Kannur district to BJP or RSS, the murder was carried out to avenge the attack on P Jayarajan.”

In the report, the CBI contended that P Jayarajan and first accused Vikraman share close links. “He is a close associate of P Jayarajan, district secretary of CPI (M) and former president of Patyam Social Service Society,” the report read.

“P Jayarajan is a close family friend of Vikraman and always gets involved in the family disputes of Vikraman. Vikraman is working as peon at Patyam Service Co operative Bank and his wife is also working there,” it further read.The report also indicates Jayarajan’s link with C Prakasan, another accused in the case. Prakasan is the managing director of Patyam Social Service Society.

T I Madusudhan, Payyanur CPM area secretary, is another accused in the case. He has helped Vikraman after he sustained  injury from the bomb he hurled at Manoj’s vehicle before murdering him, according to the report.  The area secretary had contacted Dr Kunhikannan, the CMO of a private hospital, to facilitate the treatment of injured Vikraman. Following his direction, Dr Kunhikannan contacted the duty doctor, Nabeel, to provide treatment to Vikraman, and to keep it off the hospital records, the report said. The eventualities have been adduced to link the role of leaders in the murder.
