Action only after studying court judgment: Jaiprakash Associates
THE Kerala Police on Saturday took into custody half-a-dozen suspects who are believed to be involved in the brutal murder.
So far, no arrests have been made. But the investigation is going on. We are certain that we will be able to crack the case,” said the top police official.
Director General of Police Jacob Punnoose told the media in New Delhi: “As of now it looks like a pre-planned attack.
A special police team has been formed to investigate it.” Chandrasekharan’s body was taken from the Kozhikode Medical College hospital to the Town Hall for the public to pay homage and from there, it was taken to his home town.
The funeral will take place on Saturday.
Everywhere, huge crowds had gathered to have a one last look of the popular local leader who was brutally murdered.
As Congress and Communist Party of India (Marxist) leaders in Kerala sparred over last night’s brutal murder of CPM rebel and Revolutionary Marxist Party leader T P Chandrasekh-aran, police on Saturday came across some clues about the assailants and traced the car they used and took into custody two suspects.
Ruling United Democratic Front (UDF) enforced a statewide strike, while CPM hit out at UDF alleging the murder was part of a conspiracy to “tarnish and haunt” the party with an eye on June 2 assembly bye-election to Neyyattinkara segment.
State DGP Jacob Punnose said that as per pre-planned preliminary investigations the murder was preplanned but declined to divulge the details gathered by the police.
A car was found abandoned on roadside at Chokli near Thalassery town in Kannur district in which the assailants were suspected to have come and ambushed Chandrasekharan around 10.30 pm Friday night.
