One more person accused in the ‘Pottu’ Suresh murder case surrendered before the magistrate court here on Monday.

Police said Thirumurugan alias ‘Kattuvasi’ Murugan (32) of Keeraithurai, was also involved in a few other cases, including the Dinakaran office attack case. He was also a close aide of Vijayapandi, nephew of ‘Attack’ Pandi, who is at large, the police added.

Murugan surrendered before Judicial Magistrate-IV Rajalingam, who remanded him to 14 days in judicial custody. Along with Murugan, 16 people, including Vijayapandi, are now in judicial custody in the ‘Pottu’ Suresh murder case.

Last week, Vilvadurai, another accused, had surrendered before the magistrate court and was interrogated in police custody for three days. He was later sent to judicial custody, the police said.

‘Pottu’ Suresh, a close aide of former DMK minister M K Alagiri, was murdered on January 31. In this regard, police booked cases against several persons, including ‘Attack’ Pandi, a former aide of Alagiri.
