KOLLAM: In yet another 'Drishyam' style murder, a 44-year-old man was beaten to death by his brother and the body was buried with the help of his mother. Two years later, the incident came to light after a relative gave a tip-off to police.

The Pathanamthitta police received a tip-off that a man, who went missing from Anchal in Kollam two years ago, was murdered by his relatives and buried near his house. The deceased has been identified as Shaji Peter, 44, a native of Eroor.

After the police shared the tip-off with their counterparts in Kollam, the Eroor Police immediately took Shaji's elder brother Sajin Peter, mother Ponnamma and Sajin's wife Arya into custody.
