THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Another person was arrested in connection with the Sudheesh murder in broad daylight in Kalloor, Pothencode. Sudheesh’s close friend Shibin was arrested. This increased the total number of those arrested to nine.
Sudheesh, 35, from Lakshamveedu Colony in Chembakamangalam was hacked to death in Sajeev’s home in Pananvila at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. Sudheesh’s brother-in-law Shyam Kumar and Shibin were arrested and showed the villains where the former was hiding. Sudheesh had defeated Shyam when a dispute broke out over a local ganja trade case. After that, the two became enemies. Sudheesh hid after a scuffle on December 6th in Mangattumoola in Attingal at his relatives’ house in Kalloor.
Shortly before the attackers landed in front of Sudheesh, Shibin, a friend of the two, visited the former and offered him schnapps. Shibin gave the details of Sudheesh to Shyam. According to police, Shyam Ottakam called Rajesh and Unni and reported about Sudheesh.
Those arrested told police that they did not want to kill Sudheesh, but only wanted revenge for the earlier attacks. Everyone in the group had previously been hostile to Sudheesh because of many incidents. Sudheesh was accused in the case of throwing a biscuit at Unnis mother. Police said it was Ottakam Rajesh who organized the villains.
