CPM leaders have Onam in jail

Three murder cases this year are haunting the CPM in the state, and close to 10 of its prominent leaders are lodged in Kannur central jail.

This apart, a murder case of the past, in Idukki, is up for reinvestigation, putting the local CPM leadership in the dock.

Among those lodged in Kannur are the party’s Panur area committee member P.K. Kunhananthan and Kozhikode district secretariat member, P. Mohanan.

The other prominent leaders in judicial custody are CPM local committee member K.C. Ramachandran, the eighth accused in the TPC murder and CPM Kannur district secretariat member Karai Rajan, and Thiruvangad local committee member Karai Chandrasekharan.

Karai Rajan and Karai Chandrasekharan are accused in the sensational Fazal murder case.

The Ernakulam session court had, on August 22, dismissed the bail applications of CPM leaders Karai Chandrasekharan and Karai Rajan, the seventh and the eighth accused in the murder case.

P. Mohanan was arrested on June 29, and since then he moved two bail applications before the Kerala high court, but to no avail. His wife K.K. Lathika is the CPM MLA from Meppayyur in Kozhikode.

On Thursday, the high court had dismissed the bail applications of six CPM activists including P.K. Kunhananthan, K.C. Ramachandran, P. Mohanan, M.C. Anoop and Sijith.

However, CPM MLA T.V. Rajesh and Kannur district secretary P. Jayarajan, involved in the Shukkoor murder case, have been granted bail by the high court and are released.

The claim by Idukki CPM leader M.M. Mony that the party annihilated some of its rivals in the district has led to the reopening of the Anchery Baby murder case, and Mony is likely to face arrest soon.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
