Kodanad case prime accused ‘Walayar’ Manoj has moved The Nilgiris district sessions court with a plea to relax his bail conditions.
The court has directed to provide surety signatures from two persons either from Coimbatore or The Nilgiris and a bond for Rs 50,000.
While nine others were granted bail following their fulfillment of the bail conditions, Manoj was lodged in the Coonoor sub-jail as he could not furnish surety. Meanwhile, Manoj has moved the court with a plea to relax his bail conditions. His petition is expected to come up for hearing on September 13.
‘Walayar’ Manoj triggered a storm a year ago by claiming in television interviews that they executed the burglary at the behest of a prominent AIADMK leader. He also said that several documents were stolen away from the sprawling Kodanad bungalow of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
A gang broke into the Kodanad estate bungalow of former AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa following her demise and looted valuables after murdering the security guard on April 23, 2017.
