Two Kerala natives being questioned in Jaya estate guard murder case
Two persons were on Sunday taken into custody for questioning over the killing of a security guard at a bungalow in Kodanadu Estate, which was frequeted by former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
A Tamil Nadu police team, which has gone to Kerala, along with the local police is interrogating the duo near Nilambur for their suspected involvement in the case, officials said.
Om Bahadur, a security guard posted at the bungalow at Kodanad Estate in Nilgiris district, was found dead and one of his colleagues seriously injured on April 24 following an apparent break in there.
Some documents were also suspected to have been stolen from the bungalow.
Police have so far identified six out of the 11 people who are allegedly involved in the killing of the guard.
A former driver of Jayalalithaa and one of the main suspects in the case, Kanakaraj, was killed after his two- wheeler hit a car at Athur in Salem district on Saturday.
Another suspect and close friend of Kanakaraj, Sayan suffered serious injuries, while his wife and child died in a road accident involving their two-wheeler and a car in Kerala's Thrissur district the same day, they said. The condition of Sayan, undergoing treatment at a private hospital here, is stable, doctors attending to him said.
