Dramatic scenes unfolded at Technopark here on Monday when the police brought Nino Mathew, the first accused in the Attingal twin murder case, to gather evidence from the company where he and the second accused, Anu Shanti, worked.

Employees who shouted ‘’go back’’ slogans against the accused also attempted to manhandle him when the police took him back after collecting evidence from the office. Though the accused received some blows, the police escorted him safely back to the jeep.

Omana, 60, and Swasthika, 4, were brutally murdered and her son Lijeesh was hacked by the accused on Wednesday.

According to the police, the attack was the result of an extra-marital relation between Nino and Lijeesh’s wife Anu Shanti.

Nino Mathew, who was in judicial remand, was handed over to the police on Monday noon.  

 At Technopark, the police took statements from the manager-in-charge and their colleagues. The co-workers are learnt to have told the police that she appeared normal even after her brother arrived with the bad news.

The police examined their cabins and also visited the pantry room where the accused hatched the plan to kill Lijeesh. Punching details were also taken from the office records.

Later, the accused was taken to the footwear showroom from where he purchased a pair of sandals which he wore while committing the murders. The accused was also taken to the supermarket, from where he bought chilly powder, and the vacant plot opposite the Kazhakootam Police Station where he parked his car.   

Evidence will be collected from the crime spot on Tuesday.

Additional force from other stations will be mobilised to prevent possible protests from the local people, Attingal CI M Anil Kumar said.   Lijeesh was discharged from hospital on Sunday.
