NAGAPATTINAM:  Seven years after getting bail in a murder case and absconding, a 35-year-old accused was arrested in Coimbatore on Monday by a special police team from Kariyapattinam police station.

The accused Babu (35), son of Pakirisamy hailing from Thennampulam village near Vedaranyam was produced before the Vedaranyam judicial magistrate and was subsequently lodged in prison on Tuesday.

In 2007, the accused was charged with the murder of an AIADMK functionary Thyagarajan, a former panchayat president of Settipulam village near Vedaranyam. Besides, Babu was also facing charges of attempt to murder and rape. After obtaining conditional bail in the murder case in 2007, it is said Babu was absconding for the last seven years.
