Kasargod, Feb 1: The mortal remains of a woman suspected to be murdered was found in a shed of a rubber estate Yelakana, Mandara near Perla.
The deceased is identified as Neethu Krishna, a resident of Kollam, whose husband Anto Sebastian of Wayanad had reportedly gone missing giving rise to suspicions.
The couple had relocated to a 3-acre rubber estate in Mandara about a month-and-a-half ago which was owned by Rijo Joseph of Kottayam. The couple was engaged in rubber tapping and they shared the shed situated close to the estate with other labourers Rijo of Vellarikundu and two others from Bengal.
Neethu was missing for the last four days and when her husband was asked about her whereabouts he had said that she had gone to her native.
Meanwhile, Anto Sebastian had gone missing since Sunday and on Wednesday, February 1, a foul smell emanated from the house. When the estate manager peeped into the home the dead body of Neethu was found.
Subsequently, the Badiyadka police conducted an investigation and an inquest.
The police have registered a case and are investigating. Forensic experts also visited the spot and collected information about the crime.
