KANNUR: Two more were arrested by the police in the murder case of a Muslim League activist in Panoor. The police said both have taken part in the murder. With this, the number of accused in police custody has become four. The first accused in the case is Shinos who was handed over to the police by people in the area. The second accused Ratheesh Koolath was found dead as he committed suicide. On Friday evening, Ratheesh Koolath’s body was found hanging from a tree in a deserted plot of land.

Meanwhile, the police have recorded the testimony of Mansoor’s brother Muhsin. A probe official, namely Ismail had recorded the testimony of Muhsin, who is undergoing treatment. However, the opposition has alleged that the investigation is not going on in an effective manner. It is alleged that attempts have been made to save those accused, who are CPM members. The eighth accused Shasi is the CPM branch secretary of Kochiangadi. The tenth accused Jabir is CPM local committee member. The fifth accused Suhail is the regional treasurer of DYFI’s Panoor region.

Police have also discovered that the accused has made the plan to attack Mansoor via WhatsApp. Sources say that police have found crucial evidence from the phone of Shinos, an accused in the case, who is currently serving remand custody. The phone contained messages which describe the scheme of attack to kill slain Mansoor’s brother Muhsin. Bomb and swords for the attack were also collected through Whatsapp. The phone has been transferred to the cyber cell to retrieve the deleted messages. It has also been discovered that this phone was used to call the other two accused in the case—Suhali and Sreerag.
