Two accused in the T.P. Chandrasekharan murder case have been shifted to the Kozhikode district jail here from the Kannur Central Prison.

This was on the basis of an order issued by the Director General of Police (Prisons) Alexander Jacob citing the hardships faced by the jail officials and police personnel in taking them to and fro between Kannur and the Special Additional District and Sessions Court (Marad cases) at Eranhipalam, here.

Those who have been shifted are 13th accused P.K. Kunhanandan, member of the Panur area committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI (M)], and sixth accused S. Shijith aka Annan. The case related to a gang allegedly hired by a section of leaders of the CPI(M) hacking to death the Revolutionary Marxist Party leader at Onchiyam on May 4, 2012.

At present all the accused in judicial custody have been lodged at the district jail here.

Meantime, the accused have moved a petition in the court against the order of the DGP (Prisons) on Friday. The court will decide on the petition later.
