Tirurangadi: Eleven BJP-RSS workers, accused in the murder case of Faisal of Kodinhi of Malappuram have been granted bail by a local court here.
The District court on Friday gave bail to three key accused persons and eight others who were arrested later over conspiracy charges.
The key accused persons arrested by Tirurangadi police are Kanakkan Prajeesh alias Babu (30), Pallat Sreejesh (26), and Thadathil Sudheesh Kumar (25).
Those who were arrested over conspiracy charges include brother-in-law of Faisal Pullani Vinod (39), Pullani Sajeesh (32), another relative of Faisal, Pulikkal Haridasan (30), his brother Shaji (39), Chanath Suni (39), Kalathil Pradeep (32), Thayyil Lijeesh (27) and Kottayil Jayaprakash (50), who are BJP-RSS workers.
It was on November 19, that Faisal alias Anilkumar (Unni-30) son of Ananthakrishnan Nair of Kodinhi, was found dead in a drain at Kodinhi. Faisal who was working as a driver in the Middle East got converted to Islam six months ago. Later, his wife and children followed his path.
Malappuram DSP Pradeep Kumar who supervised the investigation, said that Vinod decided to finish off Faisal to prevent more conversions in the family.
Vinod had sought the help of Haridasan, Shaji, Suneesh and Sajeesh, who are local leaders of the RSS. After the local leaders sought the help of senior leaders in Parappanangadi, a local leader of the organization, Jayaprakash, convened a private meeting of the gang at Meleppuram and conspired to kill Faisal. A senior leader of the party was informed of the decision and the leader appointed a three-member gang to kill Faisal, said police.
