Police investigating the murder of Kathiravan, an accused in the Sankararaman murder case, suspect the involvement of a businessman from Tiruchy who was formerly involved in the sale of lottery.

They have begun further probe in this angle. Kathiravan was murdered last month. Police sources said that they were probing the case in all possible angles and one of them was the suspicion that a businessman based in Tiruchy could have been involved and that he could have sent funds to execute the murder.

Police sources added the businessman had earlier sought Kathiravan’s help to sort out a land grab issue faced by one of his relatives, a woman reportedly settled in Singapore.

But the businessman was upset over him allegedly getting close with the woman, the sources added. They said that the businessman was also a relative of a club owner in Chennai who was acquainted with Kathiravan’s rival gang.
