The Vadakara Judicial First Class Magistrate Court will on Friday consider the bail plea of Karayi Rajan, secretariat member of the Kannur district of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and an accused in the murder of Revolutionary Marxist Party (RMP) leader T.P. Chandrasekharan on May 4.

Magistrate M. Suhaib will also consider a petition moved by K.K. Pavithran, secretary of the Panur area committee of the CPI (M), seeking to release the white sport utility vehicle, taken into custody by the police. The vehicle, registered in the name of the secretary of the Kannur district of the CPI (M), was used by P.K. Kunhanandan, member of the Panur area committee and alleged mastermind behind the killing, to escape to Bangalore, the police said. The court on Thursday decided to extend the police custody of K. Shinoj by two more days.
