Kasargod, Jul 14: Five persons, including the prime accused, have been arrested so far in connection with the murder of T A Saabith (19), a resident Meepuguri. The arrests were made by a police team led by circle inspector C K Sunil Kumar.

The arrested are prime accused K Akshay (21) of Anangoor JP Colony, K N Vaishak (19) of Kalliangad, R Bijesh (20) of JP Colony, K Sachin Kumar (19) and a 17-year-old juvenile. It is said that while Akshay and Vaishak were directly involved in the crime, the other three had helped.

Two large knives used in the crime were recovered from an isolated spot at Nelkala on Saturday July 13 morning.

It is said that while Saabith and his friend Ahmed Rayees (20) were passing through JP Colony on the day of the murder, Akshay and Vishak were on a scooter behind them. In spite of honking, Saabith did not give space for their scooter to pass. This is said to angered Vishak and Akshay, and they reportedly waited for the duo to pass by the same area on their return.

When the two boys were on their way back, Akshay and Vishak who were lying in wait allegedly attacked them. Akshay stabbed Saabith on the lower part of his chest and fled the scene. He dumped the scooter among the bushes at a ground nearby.

As soon as the news of Saabith's death in hospital came a few hours later, Akshay and Vaishak told the other three accused to go into hiding. Akshay's mobile phone was with one of the three.

At the same time, Askhay and Vaishak took an inner road at Parakatte leading to Kudlu, from where they escaped in a private vehicle to Kanhangad. They wandered around in various places before surrendering to the police, it is said.

    Firstly we should bring cultural harmony in Mangalore - Kasargod as people are taking wrong steps .. If political leaders come front and show the right directions to the youths retaher than playing dirty politics.. We just need communal harmony. Lets all live in peace and harmony ...

    So many Criminal And so many black Masks.
    If some unemployed person starts the wholesale business of supplying Black masks to police dept then he can make bumper profit looking to the rising number of Crimes in India.

    Does not look like this was the actual reason for killing. If this indeed is the reason, the whole gang should either be admitted to the mental hospital or should be counselled and sent to jail for a very long time.

    Oh wow...21 and 19 year old murderers? And what's the reason...Ego!
    Parents really need to be careful while shaping young minds these days. Any violence children see at home, even between mother-father or uncles or anybody at home can have drastic impact on children's minds without realizing it. And sudden out bursts like this do happen. And if you have the backing of a friend to be you partner in crime then they definitely wont think of the repercussions. With whatever little I've studied, I know that such incidents are very common in the US. And the main reason behind such cases is 'a not so normal childhood'...it could be any form of abuse or violence at home. Here, I'm not trying to blame the accused's parents. I respect their feelings and sympathize them. I know its not right to jump to conclusions. This is just a thought I wanted to share.

    This may not be actual the reason.Police should have a deep investigation.Some Feku gang may be behind this to distrub communal harmony.

    I dont think this is a reason, This could be a well planned attack by the communal groups. The idea could be to flare up communal voilence in the muslim dominated area, to create tension within people and spoil the Mood of Ramadhan or Eid...this inturn creates VOTE BANK to the political leaders. BJP has been unsuccessfully trying to win a election in Kerala, and this is a well known evil idea used by them in GUJARAT and KARNATAKA to grab the Majority Hindu Votes.

    Here accused parents and victim parents were in trouble, each moment their parents life in sorrowfulness , All the times they think and crying about their children...
    At that time, the accused shows thier anger, now accused life spoils...
    Anger is a culprit of human being.
