Om Prakash, Rajesh get bail

ALAPPUZHA: Om Prakash and Puthenpalam Rajesh, accused in the Paul M. George murder case, were given unconditional bail by the Alappuzha Sessions Court on Monday. However, the two will remain in jail as they face trial in six other cases, including murder cases, in various courts in the State.

Sessions Judge E. Mytheen Kunju, after hearing defence counsel Priyadarshan Thampi’s argument that the police had not been able to prove any involvement of the duo in the case other than attempts to destroy evidence, ruled that the charges framed against the two were bailable under Section 201 of the Indian Penal Code. The criminal background of the duo was not being taken into consideration in connection with the Muthoot murder case and hence they were being allowed unconditional bail, the judge said.
