Three terror suspects - ‘Police’ Fakruddin (alias) Fakruddin, Panna Ismail and Bilal Malik—were charge sheeted by the Special Investigation Division (SID) of the CB-CID in connection with the murder of Hindu Munnani (HM) leader S Vellaiyappan.

Investigation Officer of the case Venkataraman had already produced evidence such as the two-wheeler (Yamaha CD 135, registration no TN 59 R 1329) used by the trio in the murder. The team had also submitted video footage from surveillance cameras of the commercial establishments along the Vellore-Katpadi Road that had visuals of the murderers following Vellaiyappan, said sources.

Investigation team sources said, the five eyewitnesses identified Bilal and Fakruddin as the murderers of Vellaiyappan in an identification parade held on October 25 last year. They also identified Panna Ismail as one of the murderers of the HM state general secretary during a separate identification exercise. “The positive identification is a stronghold for the case apart from the house owner’s statement where Bilal stayed for nearly six months,” said a source.
