It was Excise Special squad circle Inspector Jiju Jose who sent an eight-member team to arrest Ranjith, based on the information that he is in possession of 10 kg ganja.

The team that headed to Malappuram in official as well as rented vehicle reached here October 1 and from Thiroor, at around 11am, they arrested Ranjith with 2 kg ganja.

On being questioned, Ranjith revealed that there was more ganja in a lodge in Guruvayur. Though the police took him to the loge and searched the entire place, they could not find anything.

Though he was questioned for about three hours, Ranjith didn’t spill beans. Due to alleged torture during interrogation, he became exhausted and fell down unconscious on the floor. Though he was rushed to a nearby private hospital, he was declared brought dead.

Excise officials initial explanation was that Ranjith developed epileptic fits while he was in the police jeep and he turned violent towards the Excise officers inside the jeep.
