Accused held for murder of friend

THRISSUR: The crime branch arrested a youth for killing his friend and then dumping the body in the septic taken near his workshop. Dilip of Mannutthy, who landed here from Saudi Arabia, was taken into custody from Nedumbassery Airport Tuesday morning. The skeleton and remains of the body were recovered from the septic tanks days before. The body was that of Saji, son of John of Ollukkara. Saji was murdered by Dilip over a verbal dispute.

Saju, who went out on August 29 in 2010 to buy food for his children never returned back. The Mannuthy police closed the investigation as no evidence was obtained. Crime branch took over the case after a complaint was lodged by his relatives in 2012. Saji was doing money lending business. Dilip had borrowed money from Saji and a verbal dispute broke out between the two on it. Dilip fled to the Gulf after police closed the case. Many attempts were made to bring him back.  

Saji leaves behind his wife and three daughters.
