No anticipatory bail for lawyer Udayabhanu

The Kerala High Court dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of by a prominent criminal lawyer here in a case related to the murder of a real estate dealer, holding that his custodial interrogation was highly essential.

“From the materials placed before this court and the materials in the case diary, I am of the view that role of the petitioner in the crime requires a deeper probe… this is a case where custodial interrogation is highly essential,” Justice A. Hariprasad said in his order.

The judge, who heard the matter after Justice P. Ubaid had earlier recused himself from the case, dismissed the anticipatory bail petition filed by C.P Udayabhanu.

Real estate dealer Rajeev was found dead in a deserted building at Chalakudy in Thrissur district last month.

In the previous hearing of the petition, the prosecution had informed the judge that the lawyer had been named as the seventh accused in the case.

It had claimed that Udayabhanu had links with the 46-year-old real estate dealer and the persons arrested in connection with his killing.
