Trial in RMP leader murder case begins
Kozhikode: The trial in the murder of the Revolutionary Marxist Party leader, T P Chandrasekharan, commenced at the Special Additional District Sessions Court (Marad cases) at nearby Eranhipalam on Monday.
About 280 witnesses are scheduled to be examined by Special Judge R Narayana Pisharadi, during 48 working days till April 17. The schedule has been prepared in such a way to complete the trial in the wake of an order of the Kerala High Court directing the special court to complete the trial before July 31, this year.
The case relates to the hatching of a plot and engaging a hired gang to kill the RMP leader.
The special investigating team (SIT) had initially chargesheeted 76 persons. However, the High Court had stayed the trial of 15 accused.
Chandrasekharan, a former CPI-M leader from the party stronghold of Onchiyam in Kozhikode district, was killed by a seven-member gang at Vallikkad near Vatakara on May 4. Chandrasekharan floated RMP after leaving the CPI-M. Several local CPI-M leaders have been arrested in connection with the case.
