KOTTAYAM:The sensational triple murder, in which a septuagenarian, his wife and elder son were brutally murdered at Parampuzha near here recently, was pre-meditated, and not one committed under sudden provocation, said Kanjirappally DySP Kuriakose V U on Sunday.

“We will demand his custody for further investigation, and evidence collection will be done only after getting him in custody,” said the DySP. According to the police, the accused, who had a debt of Rs 2 lakh, came to Kerala with the intention of making a quick buck.

He approached slain Praveen after seeing an employment advertisement published by him for his laundry, on March 18. It was Praveen’s brother Vipin Lal who took him to the house. Soon, the accused gained the confidence of the family members and his colleagues.

On the day of the crime, the accused hacked Praveen to death using an axe. Later, he called Lalson and Prasanna on the pretext of attending a customer at the laundry.

Then, Narendrakumar killed them too using the same axe, and looted all the valuables from the house, including the jewellery worn by Prasanna. He also electrocuted Praveen to confirm that he was dead.

Narendrakumarwent to Thiruvananthapuram, and then to Bombay via Goa. From Goa, he went to Agra and then to Firozabad. Narendrakumar was tracked through signals of the mobile phones he had stolen from the victims, with the help of the UP Police.
