Thrissur: Kodi Suni, the convict in the T P Chandrasekharan murder case, has been subjected to 'severe punishment' by the Prisons Department in connection with the unleashing of a riot after attacking the employees of the Viyyur high-security prison.

Suni has now been shifted from Viyyur Prison to Tavanur Central Jail. Though Suni had repeatedly raised the demand to shift him from Viyyur for the past three years, it could not be implemented as the court did not allow it. Suni's demand was fulfilled when he was shifted to Tavanur after the riots in Viyyur. With this, the move to shift Suni to Kannur Central Jail has also become active.

A riot broke out inside the high-security prison the other day under the leadership of two quotation heads, including Suni, alleging that an insufficient quantity of food was being served to them in the prison. A prisoner and a jailer were injured in the clashes.
