Bail conditions of two CPI-M leaders relaxed

Kochi, Oct 9 (IANS) The Kerala High Court on Friday relaxed the bail conditions of two CPI-M leaders, enabling them to file nominations for the coming local body elections in Kannur district.

Karayi Rajan and Karayi Chandrasekharan are accused in the murder of Communist Party of India-Marxist activist Fasal in 2006 and are currently out on bail.

After the CBI took over the case, the two surrendered before a court in June 2012 after non-bailable arrest warrants were issued against them.

In November 2013, the high court granted conditional bail to the two, saying they should not leave Ernakulam district.

On Friday, the court relaxed the bail conditions and allowed them to move out of Ernakulam district and proceed to their home district Kannur to file their nominations on October 12.

The local body polls in Kannur are scheduled on November 2.
