Govt gets legal advice for CBI probe in T.P murder case

Kochi: Director General of Prosecutions T Asaf Ali on Thursday advised the Kerala government that there was no illegality in ordering a CBI probe into the conspiracy charge relating to the murder of T P Chandrasekharan, founder leader of Revolutionary Marxist Party, a breakaway group of CPI-M.

The legal advise was given after the state had sought the DGP's opinion on a CBI probe into the conspiracy charge of the murder.

Earlier, the Chombal police station in Kozhikode had registered a case relating to the conspiracy charge of the murder case and filed a chargesheet before the court.

The committal proceedings relating to the case is pending before a magistrate court in Kozhikode district.

The Special Court at Kozhikode had recently sentenced 11 persons, including three local CPI-M functionaries, to life imprisonment in the case.

RMP and Chandrasekharan's widow, Rema, has also sought a CBI probe into the killing and has threatened to go on fast, demanding the same.

Chandrasekharan, a former CPI-M worker from the red bastion Onjiyam near Vatakara in north Kerala, was hacked to death by an eight-member gang on May 4, 2012.

He left CPI-M a few years ago over differences with the leadership and floated a parallel outfit, the RMP. He was 51 at the time of murder and suffered 51 hack injuries on the body.

The murder had cast a shadow on CPI-M in the state, firmly controlled by state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan with not only rival parties, but senior leaders like V S Achuthanandan using it as a weapon to attack internal foes.
