Notorious gangster Ajith Kumar alias Ammakkorumakan Soju was apprehended by the police on Tuesday, it is learnt. He is the key accused in a case related to the murder of a tipper lorry driver here two months back.

Though the police have not recorded his arrest, it is understood that Soju, who landed in police net in one of the North Indian states the other day, was brought back to Kerala on Tuesday. ‘’We have to collect more evidence and, right now, nothing more could be said,’’ said City Police Commissioner T J Jose.

He declined to comment whether Soju was arrested or not.  

Soju, 34, was absconding after the murder of Saji, an associate of Choozhattukotta Ambili, another goon in the district and rival of Soju, at Nedumkad near Karamana here in September. Saji was hacked to death by a gang and the case is that it was Soju who planned the murder.

The police were on the lookout for him all over the state as well as in other states.

On Saturday, reports appeared that Soju was nabbed from Delhi.

However, the police said that he was not arrested but only located.

It is learnt that his arrest would be recorded on Wednesday.
