Thiruvananthapuram: CPI-M on Thursday expelled from the party one of the three accused sentenced to life imprisonment in the politically sensational T P Chandrasekharan murder case.

The decision to expel Kunnammakara local committee member K C Ramachandran was taken by the CPI-M state committee which met here in the presence of the party general secretary Prakash Karat.

According to a statement, Ramachandran had personal animosity with Chandrasekharan, a CPI-M rebel who floated a parallel left outfit called Revolutionary Marxist Party (RMP) at Onchiyam in Kozhikode district.

The CPI-M decision drew immediate flak from RMP leaders who dubbed it as a "ploy" to wash the party's hand offs the case, the conspiracy angle of which is being probed by CBI.

Chandrasekharan was brutally hacked to death on May 4, 2012. A special court in February this year sentenced 11 persons, three of them local CPI-M functionaries, to life imprisonment in connection with the case.

The Chandrasekharan murder case is considered one of the issues to prominently figure in the Lok Sabha polls.
