PATHANAMTHITTA: The incident where Tinchu Michael (26) of Kanayangal house in Pullanjipara in Mallappally's Kottangal was found hanging in the house has been proven to be a case of murder. Naseer (Neymon-39), of Pulimoottil house in Mallappally's Kottangal was arrested by Crime Branch DySP J Umesh Kumar.

What the police say about the incident: The incident took place on December 15, 2019.

Tinchu, who was a nurse at a private hospital in Thiruvalla, left her husband and lived with her lover Tijin Joseph. Naseer, a timber merchant and neighbour, is an acquaintance of Tijin's father.

Tijin and his father were out on the day of the incident. Tinchu was the only one at home. She was knocked unconscious on the bed by Naseer, who came during this time, while trying to subdue her in the bedroom. After brutally abusing her, Naseer hanged her from an iron hook on the roof of the room.


The case was investigated by Shereef Kumar, then Perumpetty SI, on the basis of Tijin's complaint. The local police investigation was initially based on hanging.

The district crime branch took up the case after complaints were raised alleging mystery. The then Crime Branch DySP and present Thiruvananthapuram Control Room ACP R Prathapan Nair conducted a scientific investigation and found that sexual harassment and murder had taken place.

More than fifty wounds were found on Tinchu's body.

The blood sample taken from the nails of the dead body proved to be the turning point in the probe.
