KOCHI: The accused in the RMP leader T P Chandrasekaran murder case will be produced in the Kerala High Court today. The accused are being produced for a hearing on whether to increase the sentence of the accused. Out of the 14 accused in the case, 12 will be produced in the court today.


Accused one to seven including M C Anoop, Kirmani Manoj and Kodi Suni, who were directly involved in the act, eighth accused K C Ramachandran, 11th accused Trouser Manojan and 18th accused Vayappadachi Rafeeq will be produced as newly found guilty.


The high court found guilty K K Krishnan, tenth accused and who was a member of the Onchiyam area committee of the CPM and Jyoti Babu, a former local committee member of Kunnothuparambu in Kannur, after quashing the trial court order. The two had surrendered last week. The court will also hear their sentence today. The hearing will be at 10.15 am.
