COIMBATORE: Coimbatore rural police arrested three persons of a 30-member gang, which reportedly freed the accused in a cheating case in Kerala as he was being escorted to Ernakulam from Chennai.

The accused were identified as V Ezhavarasan (23), E Vigneshwaran (23) and R Velmuthu (21), all natives of Thoothukudi.

On Saturday night, when Kerala police were on the way to Ernakulam with the accused P Maharajan, a 30-member gang reportedly waylaid them near Karumathampatty and freed the accused. Eyewitness have revealed that they escaped in a car and moved towards Salem.

Based on the complaint of Sub-Inspector Aneesh Kumar, the Karumathampatty police were on the lookout for the culprits. In this regard, after accessing the call records of Maharajan’s brother Saminathan, police managed to identify the trio, who apparently confessed to their involvement in the plan.
