IDUKKI: Two more policemen were arrested on Monday in connection with alleged custodial death of Rajkumar in Nedumkandam. Police driver Niyaz and ASI Rejimon were the police officers who were attested. They were arrested after a detailed interrogation.

With the above arrested, the total number of policemen arrested have become four.

Niyaz and Rejimon had gone into hiding earlier but Monday morning they appeared in front of the investigation team. The interrogation started soon after this.
Idukki SP K B Venugopal, who is facing allegations, has already been transferred as anti-terror squad SP. In his place, former Malappuram SP T Narayanan was appointed.

Meanwhile, the CPI and Congress have demanded suspension of Venugopal after charging him with murder offence. Policemen who were remanded earlier were Nedumkandam SI K A Sabu and Civil police officer Sajeev Antony.

The case relates to the custodial torture and subsequent death of Rajkumar, an accused in a financial fraud case.

The steps to arrest the policemen were expedited after other accused in the case Shalini and Manju gave the statements that Raju was beaten up by nine policemen.
