sudhakaran

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The government is looking into the possibility of further investigation in a case following the revelation of KPCC president K Sudhakaran that the murder of a worker named Nanu at the Kannur Xavier Hotel was a mistake by the Congress. The law department will examine various aspects and make a decision. As the crime is disclosed, the investigation will also look into filing a case under Evidence Act 58 and IPC 304 Part Two for involuntary manslaughter. The imposition of a section punishable by up to 10 years will also be examined. It will also assess whether a case can be registered now as the murder took place 50 years ago.

According to CRPC 468, an offense punishable by up to one year must be investigated within one year and an offense punishable by up to two years must be investigated within two years. If it is an offense punishable by three or more, it can be investigated at any given time. Further investigation will be conducted under CRPC 173 (8) on the basis of the new disclosure. Only the trial court needs to be informed. No prior permission of the court is required. If there are new accused, re-investigation may be requested. A special application has to be made to the trial court for this. It can be given to anyone. Based on that, the court will make a decision.
