The DMK man, arrested with weapons by a CB-CID team here on Friday night, is likely to be questioned by the Special Investigation Division (SID) in connection with the murder of BJP functionary ‘Auditor’ V Ramesh.

SID sources said that this was the first arrest made by the SID in Salem. Sources said that Shajahan was under scanner after a tip-off that he had had links with five persons arrested in connection with seizure of explosives in Melapalayam a few days ago.

Shajahan was arrested while moving near Venus Marriage Hall with a bag. On checking, the team found that the bag contained  nine sharp weapons.

Shajahan, a DMK member of Mulluvadi Gate area,  was an accused in the murder of rowdy Mandai Babu and advocate Jayachandran and had been detained under the Goondas Act.

Shajahan was produced before the Judicial Magistrate Court No 4 and remanded in judicial custody.
