Kasargod, Jul 9: The police have said that they have got information that seven persons were involved with the murder of a youth named T A Saabith from Meepuguri at J P Colony on the outskirts of the town on Sunday.

They said that they have identified two of the culprits directly involved with the murder as Akshay (19) and Vaishakh, while efforts are on to find out the names of other killers. They hope that they will be able to get other names, once the above two are arrested.

The police have also found the two-wheeler used in the crime. Sources said that three persons have been taken for questioning.

It may be recalled that Saabith (19), who was moving in a motor bike with a friend, was stabbed to death at J P Colony here. While Saabith, who was immediately rushed to the government hospital here, did not respond to treatments, his friend had survived the attack. The police say that they have collected information that the attack was preplanned.

When Saabith and Ahmed Rayees (20), his friend from Parekatte Palla House, were returning after visiting Nullippadi to buy petrol for their bike, a gang that was lying in wait at J P Colony had suddenly pounced upon the bike. In spite of injuries, both the friends had tried to fleee in their motor bike. Saabith however, collapsed within a short distance, and was carried to the hospital with help from locals in an auto rickshaw.

The incident had given rise to an environment of tension in the town. After a group of people forced shops to close down, and pelted stones at moving vehicles, buses had gone off the road. The environment looked like undeclared bandh. This gave rise to lot of problems for people who were taken unawares by the sudden disappearance of vehicles from roads.

Since Monday morning, normalcy has returned in the town and its outskirts. Policemen have tightened security with the help of additional police and armed reserve police forces deployed from Kannur.

The body of Saabith, after post mortem at Pariyaram Medical College Hospital, was cremated at Malik Deenar Jumma Masjid in Talangere late night on Sunday.

The policemen have collected clinching information about the culprits from Saabith’s friend, who was with him when the incident occurred. Additional director general of police (ADGP), Shankar Reddy, arrived in the town on Monday morning, and held discussions with police officers. He visited the place where the stabbing incident occurred, apart from the disturbed areas.

Kannur superintendent of police, Rahul R Nair, who also holds additional charge of Kasargod district, and deputy superintendent of police, Mohan Chandran, have been supervising law and order situation. The ADGP, who has camped in the town, has also been closely observing the developments.

It is said that Akshay has already been an accused in several cases including attempt to murder.

    I dont understand why the culprits are given bail.It ll infact boost them to make more such crimes.If akshay is already an accused,then y he was left free.Make stringent laws.Introduce Non bailable act.Any criminal should b sentenced (be it thief ,killer history sheeter)minimum 7 years of jail with one meal per day.I am damn sure crime will reduce.7years should be permanent.Introduce. Such jails where single person can only stand n sit.It should be like graveyard.Instill a fear on criminal so that he/she doesnt repeat.
