Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Thursday Feb 9, 2023

Kollam : Special Investigation Team in Kollam arrested a mother and son pair for sending  bomb threat  letters albeit fake  to the Collectorate. In custody for the crime  are : residents of Puthanpura Sajan Villa in Thrikadavu, Sajan Christopher(34) and mother Kochu Theresia(62).

Images of bomb scare note sent to Collector and judge were recovered from the suspects’ mobiles. The phones also had unsavoury pictures of several women.

Sleuths apprehended Sajan from his house late Tuesday. Kochu Thresiya was arrested on confirming her  participation in the hoax. In 2014, Sajan and his friend Amal Johnson created a fake Facebook account in the name of the latter’s girlfriend and littered this page with obscene pictures  of women.

Sajan has been in and out of court lately in connection with that case. That’s when he began sending fake letters and obscene pictures to the district judge and Collector under alias of JP.

Armed with a search warrant, the police police scoured Sajan’s house and came upon a treasure trove of evidences including more letters in the suspect’s handwriting and images. Police also found letters with obscene content and threat made out to Sajan and his mother from court, signed as JP. The suspect admitted it was a ploy to mislead police that a third person was involved.

The arrest team led by ACP Abhilash comprised :  Kollam West CI Shefiqh, Control Room CI Jose, SI Anish, Deepu, Jyotishkumar, Shemir, Binu, Jalaja, Rama, Bindu and Suma
