Kochi : Two more men, Sharath and Jibin, were arrested by police in connection with the murder of Vipin native Pranav (23), whose body was found lying by the wayside on Tuesday morning on Beach Road.
Sharath and Jibin told police the crime was a retaliation for Pranav’s inappropriate behaviour toward the former’s girlfriend. Intriguingly, they cite an argument that took place over 6 months ago as motive for the murder.
19-year-old Ambadi from Kaipinveettil, Ayampally was nabbed on Tuesday. KAPA will be invoked in the case, the Aluva Rural SP Kartik hinted, adding that, there are more persons involved in the crime. The culprits in custody are drug abusers and members of local drug gang.
