It has come to light that the triple murder at Karamadai that took place on March 28 were committed by two alcoholics in an attempt to rob money from the victims to buy liquor.

The motive was revealed by one of the accused, K Sridhar (21), who surrendered before a VAO and was remanded to judicial custody by a Mettupalayam court on Monday, in his confession to the police. 

Police said they were on the look out for Sridhar’s brother in-law Anand (24), who assisted the former in killing one of the three victims.

“The accused, who are both daily wagers of Karamadai, used to steal money from pavement dwellers in their locality to buy liquor. Since Sreedhar was heavily drunk on the gory night, he became aggressive and murdered the three persons after they resisted his attempt,” said E S Uma, Superintendent of Police, Coimbatore.

On March 28, three persons, K Ramesh (42), M Sekar (32) and Velusamy - were found dead with multiple stab injuries in the vicinity of Karamadai bus terminus.

According to police, the accused while walking on the railway track near the Karamadai bus terminus encountered Velusamy. The duo then assaulted and murdered Velusamy to rob `2000 which he had in his possession.

“Later, they returned to Sridhar’s house where Anand also stayed. After some time, Sridhar alone came to the bus terminus and went on a killing spree,” said an investigating officer.
