The Kunnathur police have secured four people from Karnataka for questioning in connection with the murder of S. Appusamy, who was reported missing from Ediyarpalayam near here a few days ago.


Police sources said Mysore police also had taken up a case in connection with murder of the advocate.

Appusamy reportedly went to Bangalore a few days ago for some official purposes but did not return home.

This prompted his relatives to lodge a complaint with the Kunnathur police. He was later found dead in Karnataka, police sources said.
