Court rejects bail plea of Salim Raj

Kozhikode: The Judicial First Class Magistrate Court here on Friday rejected the bail applications of Salim Raj, former gunman of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, and six others who were arrested here on charges of kidnapping.

Salim Raj, 42, and his gang were arrested on the charge of manhandling the complainant, Prasannan, on the Karikkamkulam-Balussery road on Tuesday.

According to the complaint, Irshad, brother of Rasheeda, the woman who had been missing from Ochira and found along with the complainant, threatened Prasannan that they will attack him if he entered Kollam district.

Prasannan and Rasheeda Beevi, who were travelling in a car, were chased by the gang in a car. The intervention of the local people foiled the alleged attempt to kidnap the complainant.

The prosecution had on Thursday charged Salim Rag and the others with Section 364 (kidnapping or abducting in order to murder). They were already charged with Sections 365 (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine persons), 143 (unlawful assembly), 144 (unlawful assembly armed with deadly weapons), and 506 (1) (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The others accused in the case are Riju, 28; Irshad Basheer, 24; Siddique, 37; Sattar, 37; Shamnad, 29; and Junaid, 32.
