Karayi Rajan and seven others, including CPM leaders were been charged for the murder of a National Development Front worker Muhammad Fazal in 2006.
But the video clip, which has reportedly been accessed through Right to Information Act, has a RSS worker Subheesh confessing about his and his fellow RSS workers' role in the killing of Fazal. The confession was recorded while Sudheesh was in police custody, and has been confirmed by police sources.
A portion of the audio recording leaked to media purportedly includes the confession.
But the video has been dismissed by BJP state President Kummanam Rajasekharan. "There is nothing new in this video evidence. The CBI has already informed the court that this confession is not trustworthy. But not just that, Subheesh has also stated that he was tortured into making this particular confession," he said. The RSS is the ideological mentor of the BJP which has been trying to gain political ground in Kerala.
