KANNUR: Three more CPM workers were arrested on Saturday in connection with the murder of S.P. Shuhaib, Youth Congress leader of Mattannur, on February 12. The three, Ashkar, Akhil and Anwar, were taken into custody from Virajpetta in Karnataka. SP Shiv Vikram  confirmed that they are CPM workers, thus proving the role of the party in the murder.  

Ashkar was part of the killer gang while the other two were involved in  the conspiracy, the SP said. It is learnt that five persons were taken into custody, but the police confirmed only three arrests. They have also extended the investigation to other parts of Karnataka as many party workers from Kannur district are settled in the towns in that state. The police had earlier arrested Akash Thilla-nkery and Rejin Raj, two CPM workers, in the case. They are in judicial custody now but the police have sought their custody for further investigation.  

 

Congress leader K. Sudhakaran alleged that the CPM elements tap the mobile phones of investigation officials, Congress leaders and mediapersons.  Though the CPM district leadership had tried to produce dummies in the case, the police team refused to budge.  Akash had revealed that the quotation for the murder was given by the DYFI leadership at Mattannur.
