The Edacherry police on Friday arrested P.V. Rafeeque aka Vazhappapadachi Rafeeque, an accused in the case of killing T.P. Chandrasekharan, in connection with another case pending against him.

A team of police personnel arrested him from the premises of the Special Additional Sessions Court (Marad Cases), at Eranhipalam here.

A long pending warrant had been issued against him by the Vadakara First Class Magistrate Court in 1999.

The police had registered a case against Rafeeque in connection with a vehicle accident in 1994.

He had knocked down a person.

But the police all these years were confused regarding his name.
