CHENNAI: A 37-year-old history sheeter, prime accused in the murders of another gangster and an advocate in the Bomb Blast Court in Poonamallee, surrendered before the Pulianthope police on Tuesday night.

Police said ‘Arcot’ Suresh, a resident of Pulianthope, had allegedly murdered Chenna Kesavan, another history sheeter, and the latter’s advocate Bhagat Singh in Poonamallee Court hearing bomb blast cases, in 2010.

He was found extorting a passerby near Ambattur and was reportedly picked up by the cops.

A ganja peddler, Suresh and others started out as mercenaries for Chennakesavalu. Over a period of time, an ego clash led to Suresh parting ways along with a group. Since then, the two turned out to be sworn enemies.

Adding fuel to it, Suresh’s wife had eloped with Chenna.

Suresh faces many cases of murder and extortion cases in several police stations across the city.

A group of 21 members were behind executing the double murder, of them nine were at the scene of crime on April 30, 2010.

A week after Chenna’s murder, police had arrested a quartet - Velmurugan (24) and Raji (23) of Nandambakkam, Rakesh (24) of K.K.Nagar and Satheesh (23) of Kundrathur.
