Jewellery Shootout in Puttur: Kalia Rafiq in 8-day Police Custody
Puttur: A shootout targeting Rajadhani Jewellers located on the main road here had taken place on Oct 6 last year. Investigations revealed that fugitive underworld don ‘Kali’ Yogish had planned the attack through his henchman Kalia Rafiq.
Rafiq is currently lodged in judicial custody in Thrissur jail in connection with an abduction and murder case. Abdul Asir and Muhammed Anwar, who executed the act, were arrested earlier this year. It came to light during interrogations that Rafiq had paid them Rs 50,000 and provided them with two revolvers.
Since Rafiq’s interrogation was necessary, the police from here filed an application for body warrant in a court in Kasaragod.
The court approved of it and he was brought here and produced in a court. Sub-inspector Abdul Khader took him into custody and he was taken to the town police station.
