VIJAYAWADA: Five persons were arrested on Saturday in connection with the murder of rowdy-sheeter Nagul Meera (41) at Gandhi Nagar in the city in broad daylight on January 1. The arrested included Kodamala Anil (23), Konda Lakshmi (32), Munagala Jayaram (34), Sishtala Raghuram (27) and Gudela Siva Kumar (32), all are catering workers of the city. According to the police, Nagul Meera was an accused in eight criminal cases, including a dacoity, an attempt to murder and a murder, that took place in the limits of different police stations in the city.

According to the police, Nagul Meera was cohabiting with Kodamala Durga (31). Having learnt that she developed relationship with Anil of late, he warned her several times against it. But she did not heed his warnings and continued the relationship with Anil. On January 1, Nagul Meera attacked Durga with a knife in Gandhi Nagar while she was selling corn and boiled peanuts.

When she raised an alarm, he fled the scene. Later, Durga was admitted to the Government General Hospital. Her friend Konda Lakshmi, who was at the spot at that time, collected the knife left by Nagul Meera and informed the matter to Anil. He along with some of his friends started a search for Nagul Meera to take revenge for the attack on Durga. They finally caught Nagul Meera near the Chamber of Commerce building and stabbed him to death after a chase. Two other accused in the case are still absconding, the police said.
