Police arrest Five more in Kota Double Murder case

Udupi: The Udupi district Superintendent of Police said that five more persons have been arrested on Monday, February 11 in relation to the Kota double murder case.

The arrested have been identified as Abhishek alias Abhi Palan (23) a resident of Subramanya Nagar, Udupi Puttur, Santhosh Kundar (35) a resident of Hanehalli Barkur, Nagaraj alias Rotti Nagaraj (44) resident of Brahmavar, Pranav Rao (20) resident of Bhadravathi and Shanker Mogaveera (40) resident of Anjaru.

Abhishek Palan is running a painting and money laundering business and is directly involved in the murder case. The other four accused helped the main accused to escape after the crime.

With the arrest of five more persons, the number of those arrested in the brutal murder of Bharath and Yathish on January 26 has risen to thirteen.

An argument over the construction of a leach pit led to the murder of Bharath (30) and Yathish (25). They were murdered at Cikkanakere, Mannur village in Kota on January 26, and the case was registered in the Kota police station.

The prime accused in the case, Rajashekhar Reddy (44) of Manur village and G Ravi alias Medical Ravi (42), were arrested in Madikeri on February 7. Based on the information given by them, Harish Reddy (40) (the brother of Rajshekhar Reddy), Mahesh Ganiga (38) and Ravi alias Ravichandra Poojary (28) were arrested early Friday morning. ZP member Raghavendra Kanchan was arrested on Thursday based on the phone calls he had made to the accused before the murder on January 23 and after the murder on the night of January 26. During the inquiry, his involvement in the murder was proved. On Sunday, February 10, police arrested two constables Pavan Amin and Virendra Acharya attached to the DAR (District Armed Reserve), who had provided logistics support to the accused.

All the five accused were produced before the Kundapur court on the same day and remanded to police custody until February 15.
