CPM to fight CBI inaction' in Fasal's murder legally
KANNUR: The inaction of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), even after the recommendation of state police chief into the Mohammed Fasal murder case after the revelations of a BJP worker recently, has literally irked the CPM. Kannur district secretary P. Jayarajan told this newspaper that the party would take up the issue legally, as the RSS worker himself had confessed to killing the NDF worker in 2006.
“The state police chief had sent his recommendation on the basis of the new revelations made by BJP worker Embranta-vida Subeesh. Kannur CPM district secretariat member Karayi Rajan and Thiruvangad local committee secretary Karayi Chandrasekharan were jailed after the CBI named them as accused number 7 and 8 respectively in the murder case. Now, even after the recommendations of director-general of police Loknath Behera, the Central agency has not changed its stance. The party will move legally over it,” said Mr Jayarajan.
Fasal was killed in 2006 and Subeesh made the confession while he was interrogated in connection with the murder of CPM leader K. Mohanan near Anjarakkandy in October last year. The case was taken up by the CBI on February 14, 2008 after a petition by Fasal’s wife Mariyu in the High Court. The CBI had also submitted a chargesheet.
