A woman and two of her accomplices were arrested in connection with the murder of a 47-year-old man in Gowl Bazaar near Pallavaram a few days ago.

 A. Kumar of Nandanam was found murdered on Saturday morning in Gowl Bazaar. Shankar Nagar police registered a case. Their only clue was the word ‘saradha’ tattooed on the victim’s hand. They pasted posters with the photo of the victim and on seeing one, Saradha, Kumar’s wife, approached the police. After establishing his identity, his body was handed over to her.

 Police suspected Saradha’s role in the murder as she was very close to a man, Mohan and Kumar had often quarrelled with her over this.

A probe found that Saradha and Mohan plotted the murder and that the latter, with the help of Suresh, the driver of an autorickshaw owned by Saradha, got Kumar drunk and unconscious last Friday evening.

The two men then smashed his head with rock and fled.
