Murder in Karamana: Main accused held, planned to kill after appearing in court 


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: One of the main accused in the incident of killing Akhil with a stone in the middle of the road in Karamana, has been arrested. The arrested is Akhil Appu. He is being interrogated. The police said a three-member team including Akhil Appu attacked and killed Akhil.

The other two involved in the murder are Vineeth (25) alias Vineesh Raj and Kiran Krishnan (28). They are all accused in the Ananthu murder case in Karamana that happened in 2019. The police had earlier arrested some of the conspirators. Aneesh, a native of Karumam, was taken into custody by the Karamana police from Balaramapuram while he was trying to escape to Tamil Nadu. Police said the car in which the accused were travelling was driven by Anish. He was not directly involved in the murder. The silver colored Innova car they were traveling in has also been seized. The vehicle was rented from Vizhinjam. Aneesh is being questioned and his arrest will be recorded today.

The initial report is that there were four including Aneesh in the vehicle. The police also suspect that the accused may have left the state. They are accused in many criminal cases and have connections at the local level. The police said they have contacts in many places including in Tamil Nadu.

The investigation team has found that they had planned to kill Akhil after appearing in the court in the Ananthu murder case, on Friday. The accused who returned from the court and reached Karamana were planning to attack another member of Akhil's group. However, they met Akhil first.

The police have received hints that the other accused in the Ananthu murder case were also involved in the conspiracy. Many of them have been taken into custody and are being interrogated. The police said that the accused had taken drugs before the attack. The police suspect that more people are involved in the murder. They are also examining whether there were more people in the car. The police got the pictures of three people from the CCTV footage of the place where the murder took place.

The killing was in revenge for a clash that broke out at a bar in Pappanamcode on the day of the Lok Sabha polls. Three of the accused in the Ananthu murder case were injured in the attack. The police said eight people including Akhil beat them. The incident happened around 5:30 pm on Friday. Akhil, who tried to run away after seeing the accused, was brutally beaten to death with sticks, stones and iron rods. Akhil was taken to the medical college hospital but died around 8.15 pm.
