Four friends were arrested by RK Nagar police in connection with the murder of Zakeer Hussain, on Friday.

Police said Zakeer Hussain, a native of Tirunelveli and friend of Jayakumar of Korukkupet, was in a relationship with Sona, a small-time television actress and resident of Vinobha Nagar, in Tondiarpet.

As the relationship soured, Sona walked out on him and got married to another man and settled down in Andhra Pradesh. Subsequently, Hussain relocated to Vellavedu near Poonamallee.

However, Hussain kept contacting Sona over mobile phone and was causing trouble in her life.

Upset, Sona told her sister Monisha about it. Monisha, who stayed in Tondiarpet, asked her boyfriend Jayakumar to do something to help her sister.

Since Hussain used to frequent Tondiarpet, Jayakumar and his friends called him for a booze party in Vinobha Nagar. They gave him alcohol and when he was intoxicated, they stabbed him to death.

Hussain was found lying in a pool of blood. Since he was last spotted with his friends at a local TASMAC shop, cops picked up the quartet, who confessed to the crime. Further investigations are on.
