Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Jun 12: In connection with an attempt to murder a fish merchant named K Muhammed Riyaz (34), member of Pudu gram panchayat, at Malpe near here recently, the district police succeeded in arresting five accused from Belur on Monday, June 11.

The arrested accused happen to be Ismail (45), his brother, Muhammed Ghouse (35), Muhammed Kaisar (60), Muneer (25), and Anwar (25). The police said that mastermind of the attack, Ismail, who had plotted this plan, had hired the accused for contract killing.

The accused were produced in the court and remanded to judicial custody. Ismail, Ghouse and Muneer, were remanded to police custody as the police wanted his custody to hold further probe.

Muhammed Riyaz

When Riyaz, who came in a fish transport vehicle to Malpe along with some others, a gang with masks had attacked him with swords before escaping. The police who quickly formed three investigation teams, had dispatched one among the teams to Bengaluru. They got information that the accused were hiding in Belur and succeeded in arresting them. The car they used for the above crime was confiscated.

A case registered in Malpe police station in this respect is being investigated by Malpe police station sub-inspector Madhu B E.

The police have come to know that contract killing was planned and contracted to settle old scores stemming out of gram panchayat membership of Riyaz and pre-existing enmity. It is said that two groups, one led by Ismail and other by K Muhammed Riyaz often fought over the issues of the stall at Faranginet and fish sales often. Although both the groups have several members, Riyaz was picked as a target as he was a gram panchayat member. The police, on the basis of suspicion, had served notice to Ismail and during his questioning, he confessed having hired contract killers to eliminate Riyaz.
