CHENNAI: Four more persons, from Mannurpet, were arrested by the city police in connection with the murder of Hindu Munnani leader K P Suresh Kumar. With this, 14 people have been arrested in the case so far.

Police detained the quartet - Muhajir (25), Raja Mohamed (26), Shahking (24) and Jabbar (30) - on charges of harbouring the prime suspects who executed the murder. The HM leader was hacked to death by an armed gang while he was closing his shop on June 18 in the vicinity of the Police Deputy Commissioner’s office in Ambattur Industrial Estate.

Earlier, the city police arrested Abdul Hakkem, (44) of Vaniyambadi in Vellore, who was also suspected to be part of the four member hit-squad that executed the murder, and Abu Tahir (37) of Padi, who was believed to be the mastermind. They were nabbed at CMBT, on August 7.

A day before, a special team from the city in a joint operation with Bangalore police had picked up Mohammed Shameem alias Abdul Shameem (24), belonging to Tiruvithangode village in Kanyakumari and Syed Ali Nawaz (25) of Kottar, Kanyakumari. Next day, the same team picked up Mohammaed Shamiullah and Sadiq Basha of Bangalore for harbouring the accused.

A fortnight back, the city police arrested Kaja Mohideen (47) of Cuddalore, who was said to have masterminded the hit.
