CBI chargesheets Kerala CPI-M leaders in murder case

Kannur (Kerala): The CBI on Monday filed a chargesheet against two CPI-M leaders in Kerala over a 2012 murder case.

Jayarajan and Rajesh were arrested and jailed following Abdul Shukoor’s murder in February 2012

While P Jayarajan, the district secretary of the CPI-M in Kannur, was charged under Sections 302 (murder) and 124 b (criminal conspiracy), MLA TV Rajesh has been charged only under 124 b.

The chargesheet was filed before the Tellichery Court here. A hearing is slated for Thursday.

Jayarajan and Rajesh were arrested and jailed following Abdul Shukoor’s murder in February 2012, but they secured bail later that year in August.

Shukoor was a 22-year-old Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) activist.
