The Special Investigation Team  probing into the murder of policeman Maniyan Pillai in Parippally seized stolen electronic goods from suspect Aadu Antony’s rented house in Chennai. 

Three SIT teams led by SI Jayakrishnan and SI Dhanapalan located Antony’s Chennai base.  Sources  told Express that attempts are on to transport the goods, comprising mainly computers and accessories, to Kollam.   

“We were surprised to see the huge collection of goods stored in the house. But the more shocking fact was the number of women, with whom he had close relationships. As per the details obtained from the neighbours, several women frequented the house,” sources said. The SIT conducted searches at two houses in Royapettah, three houses in Ambattur and two houses in Tambaram where Aadu Antony had stayed earlier. Antony, who visited Chennai regularly for the past 20 years, had rented several houses in fake names by introducing himself as a computer professional. He constantly shifted houses and never stayed at a particular house for more than three months.

Meanwhile, police conducted a search in Antony’s house in Perumbavoor following suspicion that he might have moved there after leaving the house in Pongummoodu, near Ulloor, in Thiruvananthapuram district.

As per the inputs given by the two women, Sreelatha, 25, of Perumbavoor and Girija, 35, of Kavanadu, Kollam, who had close connections with him, Antony left the house with Soosan, the mother of  Sreelatha.

 Antony had reached the house after committing the crime. He left along with Soosan and told the other two women that they were going to a retreat centre in Chalakkudy. Attempts to trace them using Soosan’s mobile phone number also failed.
