There is also a theft case in Arshad's name in Kondotty.

K Sajeev Krishnan (23) of Malappuram, Ambalapadi Puthenpura House was found murdered in Oxoniya apartments near Edachira Ghanda Karna Temple in Kakkanad, on Wednesday. The post mortem proceedings of Sajeev Krishnan have been completed. There were more than twenty wounds on his body. There were deep wounds on his head, neck and chest.

Sajeev Krishnan was staying with three of his friends on the 16th floor of the flat. Arshad was their common friend. He used to come and stay with them at times. Two of his three friends were on a tour and the other had gone to his house in Kozhikode. Following that, Arshad came here.

When they returned on Monday, found the apartment locked. They stayed in a room nearby and when they came again around 11 am the next morning, it was still closed. They then brought a carpenter and with his help opened the door and seeing blood stains in the bedroom examined and found the body inside the duct.
