The ambulance carrying CPI (M) leader P Jayarajan, who was under judicial custody in connection with the murder of RSS leader Kathiroor Manoj, met with an accident near Thrissur on Wednesday morning.
Jayarajan was travelling to Sree Chithra Medical college Thiruvananthapuram from Kannur. The Ambulance rammed in to a road divider in Peramangalam near Thrissur reportedly after a tyre burst. After the accident Jayarajan felt uneasiness and was moved to Amala Medical college.
Though doctors were of the opinion that Jayarajan needed to be kept under 24-hour observation, police have said they will move him to Sree Chithra at the earliest. At the time of writing, CPI (M) activists had gathered near Amala college protesting the police’s move and refusing to let him be shifted until his relatives arrive.
The activists also demand that Jayarajan be taken to Thiruvananthapuram by train, citing safety concerns in case he was shifted by ambulance.
Jayarajan was remanded to judicial custody after he surrendered before the Thalassery court. Later he was shifted to hospital due to health ailments.
