Palakkad : The vehicle used in the murder of SDPI worker Subair has been confirmed as a rental car. The car, a Alto 800 with registration plate no. KL 9.AQ.79.01, was found abandoned in an industrial stretch after the murder. The owner said a BJP worker had rented it from his agent.

The said car is owned by a man named Kripesh who entrusted the vehicle to a local named Aliyar for renting out purposes. Aliiyar said, Kullimulli native Ramesh -  a person he knows well - had rented the car saying it was for a temple trip. Ramesh lives in a house very close to slain Subair.

Aliyar said cops came looking for the vehicle shortly after the murder. Police have procured voice recordings of phone conversations between Ramesh and Aliyar. Evidence suggests, Ramesh called Aliyar four days prior to the murder asking to rent the car for temple darshan. Ramesh said he would take the car on Thursday. In a voice message later, Ramesh is heard saying he would turn up only on Friday morning due to rains.
