THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:The Chirayinkeezhu police nabbed the last of the six persons charged with an alleged murder attempt. Thirty two-year-old Binoj Bhuvanachandran from Azhoor was presented before the court and remanded in judicial custody. Among the six indicted, some had criminal antecedents. The officials said that Binoj has four cases registered against him. He is from Azhoor.
According to Sub-Inspector V S Prashant, rivalry between goonda gangs had led to the accused making an attempt on the life of the victim, Suresh Sivan, a 35-year-old from Azhoor. The latter was allegedly employed by Binoj’s team, as an informer. The SI added that the accused had pulled 35-year-old Suresh into a car and was trying to flee. He said that it was the police who had intercepted the alleged attempt to kill. Though the accused ran away, the police managed to nab each of them in an operation that spanned over two weeks, he said.
