According to the police officers, the three persons have been staying in Perumbavoor, which is having a huge population of migrant workers, for the past two weeks in the guise of migrant labourers.

The trio is employed in a plywood factory.

Officers confirmed that all the persons are hailing from Assam while they have not disclosed further details regarding the arrested.
