KOZHIKODE: The Crime Branch sleuths probing the case pertaining to the murder of NRI businessman Abdul Kareem, of Thamarassery, nabbed a 21-year-old college student, who allegedly supplied chloroform to the accused.

Officials said that a team led by Crime Branch CI P R Satheesan nabbed Rafeek, 21, of Ambayathodu, Thamarassery, on charges of supplying chloroform to the accused who were earlier arrested in the case. Rafeek is a student at a city-based college and procured the chemical substance from a city shop.

With the arrest of Rafeek, the number of accused nabbed in the case has risen to five.
