The Vanchiyoor Police have arrested three persons accused in various criminal cases registered at the station.

The arrested were Pradeep alias Pathu Pradeep, 28, of TC 28/459, Vadakethaivilakam House, Sreekandeswaram Ward, Vanchiyoor, Ummar alias Syamlal of TC 28/669, Saroja Bhavan, Punnapuram Colony, Vanchiyoor, and Sumesh, 28, of TC 31/1764, Irupara House, Vayyamoola, Chakka.

The arrest follows the attack on one Santhosh who runs a petty shop near SP Fort Hospital last year. Santhosh had rejected the demand for haftha money. Pradeep hit Santhosh on his face with a cement tile while the others attacked him with tubelight bulbs, the police said.

The three were arrested from near the Corporation office at Punnapuram by a police team led by Sub-Inspector O S Sunil. The accused were produced in court and remanded.
