The rape and murder accused, who allegedly attacked a CB-CID personnel on Thursday, was arrested here on Thursday.

According to the police, Dhivakaran (25), a native of Theni district, was booked in 2011 by Rayapettai police on the charges of rape and murder of a woman.

After he came out on bail a few months ago, he absconded with his wife Pavithra and settled at Siruppoluvapatti near Tirupur as a labourer of hollow blocks manufacturing unit.

Following a tip-off, a team of CB-CID personnel from Madurai reached his residence during the early hours of Thursday to arrest him as he did not appear for the court trial in the case.

However, he attacked Chennuraj, a member of the team, with a sickle and fled the spot.

Following this, the Tirupur North police registered a case against Dhivakaran of an attempt to murder and launched a search for him. Meanwhile, police picked up his wife Pavithra and conducted inquiries with her.

On Friday morning, Dhivakaran went to Maheswaran, owner of the hollow block manufacturing unit in Kavilipalayam near Tirupur where he was employed after the bail, and asked for money.

Since Maheswaran was aware of the incident where the police was attacked, he alerted the authorities following which Dhivakaran was arrested. Further investigations are on.
