kk

PALAKKAD: The court will consider the plea filed by Madhu's mother to video record the trial proceedings in Attappadi Madhu murder case on Monday. The court will pass its verdict on a petition filed by Madhu's mother Malli demanding that the trial to be recorded as video because the defendant is unnecessarily obstructing the trial proceedings. The court will also consider the prosecution's plea to undergo forensic examination of the video footage involving the 36th witness, Abdul Latheef, who turned hostile during the trial. Latheef had denied that he was in the video footage shown in court during the trial. Following this, the prosecution had demanded that his passport photo and video footage be subjected to forensic examination for authenticity.

The High court on last day had rejected the anticipatory bail sought by the first accused Palakkad Kumaramputhoor native R V Abbas for threatening Madhu's mother Malli to withdraw from the case. Earlier, the Mannarkkad special court had also rejected Abbas's anticipatory bail plea. Justice Badruddin's bench considered the plea filed against this. The prosecution stated that Section 18 of the Prevention of Atrocities Against Scheduled Tribes Act prohibits granting anticipatory bail in such cases. They also explained the situation in which most of the witnesses were turning hostile in the case. The petition was then dismissed.
