The Kerala High Court on Thursday sought the view of the state government on the bail plea of DYFI state secretary TV Rajesh MLA, the 39th accused in the Taliparamba Shukkoor murder case. Justice N K Balakrishnan adjourned the plea to August 21.
“There is no reason to believe that Rajesh who is an MLA would go into hiding if he is released on bail,” the petition said. Rajesh submitted that he had been falsely implicated in the case and charged under Section 118 (concealing design to commit offence punishable with death or imprisonment for life) of the Indian Penal Code. The bail plea of Rajesh had been rejected by the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court.
He has been remanded in judicial custody till August 27 and imprisoned in the Kannur Central Jail.
