KOTTAYAM:A day after the brutal triple murder on Sunday in which the family members were found with throats slit at Parampuzha, near here, the police are clueless on the whereabouts of the killer.

Retired health inspector M K Lalson, 72, his wife Prasanna, 54, and their elder son Praveen Lal, 28, were found murdered at the laundry shop run near their house. The ornaments and two cell phones of the victims were found missing.

The finger of suspicion was pointed at Jai Singh, the migrant labourer at the laundry shop run by the family, as he was at large since the incident.

The police, who could make a sketch of the accused, said a team of cops accompanied by a staffer at the laundry has been following the signals from the stolen mobile phones. However, either the phone or the accused could not be traced yet.

Kanjirappally DySP Kuriakose V U, a member of  the special investigation team, told ‘Express’ that as part of the interrogation of the suspicious persons, look-alikes of the accused identified as Jai Singh were interrogated in Idukki, Kollam and Palakkad. 

Funeral Today

Ranjan, the nephew of slain Lalson, told ‘Express’ that the funeral would be held at 11.30 am on Tuesday. The three bodies are kept at the mortuary of Karipal Hops Hospital here.
