Former Dy.SP's bail plea dismissed

Staff Reporter

HIGH COURTROUND-UP

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday dismissed a bail petition filed by the former Deputy Superintendent of Police Shaji and an accused in the Praveen murder case.

Justice R. Basant also dismissed the petition filed by the second accused in the case. The prosecution case was that the police officer had harboured animosity against the deceased, Praveen, a distant relative and a crew of the bus owned by Shaji. The prosecution alleged that Praveen had an illicit relationship with the police officer's wife.

The prosecution further alleged that in furtherance of the conspiracy, the second accused allegedly murdered Praveen and ensured that the body was given to the custody of Shaji, who along with other accused took away the body in a Maruti van, cut the body into three pieces and dumped the body parts at different places. The third, fourth and fifth accused were absconding. The public prosecutor submitted that if the accused were released on bail, they would tamper with evidence and intimidate the witnesses.

Munna case

The Judge also dismissed the anticipatory bail petition filed by A. Ramachandran, former Forensic expert, who conducted the post-mortem on the body of the Abkari contractor, Munna, in the Munna murder case. The bail petition was dismissed in the light of the submission of the CBI counsel that the charges made against him were bailable.

Illegal organ transplant

The court restrained the Kozhikode First Class Magistrate court from making public the report submitted by the Deputy Inspector General of Police to the Government regarding the inquiry into the allegations about the illegal transplantation of kidneys in various hospitals in the State. The magistrate court issued the direction for production of the report when a defamation case filed by a Kozhikode-based private hospital against T.P. Nandakumar, chef editor, Crime came up.
