CPI (M) leader P Jayarajan on Wednesday was awarded bail by Principal District and Sessions Court , Thalassery on account of his deteriorating health conditions.
Judge VG Anil Kumar awarded the bail on condition that the veteran leader cannot enter Kannur district for the next two months.
While opposing his bail CBI counsel said in court that the conspiracy to kill Manoj was held in Jayarajan's family temple.
However, the CBI did not furnish any evidences to support their claim saying it will hamper the enquiry.
This comes after P Jayarajan was admitted to an Ayurveda hospital recently.
P Jayarajan had been denied bail on multiple counts by several courts for the same case.
CBI had in January listed Jayarajan as an accused and framed charges against him under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in connection with the case.
CPI(M) state leadership has all along maintained that the case was politically motivated and was part a "conspiracy" hatched by RSS and Congress in the state.
Manoj (42), a district functionary of RSS, was hacked to death in politically volatile Kathiroor in Kannur district on September 1, 2014, allegedly by a group of CPI(M) workers.
