Three days after the murder of Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam (DVK) functionary H. Farook, two people whose name had surfaced in connection with the case, surrendered at a court on Monday.

Those surrendered have been identified as Sadam Hussain (32) and Shansudheen (31), both residents of Podanur. While Hussain reached the court and submitted his surrender petition in the morning, Shamsudheen completed the formalities in the afternoon.

Both of them have been remanded to judicial custody till April 4.

The lawyer who appeared for Hussain and Shamsudheen said that the duo surrendered before the court following harassment by the police. The counsel claimed that both the persons did not have any connection with the murder of Farook.

“They were afraid to go home as police had harassed their family. Hence they stayed away from the police and surrendered before court as law permits,” said the counsel.

With this, three people have surrendered before court in connection with the incident. On Friday evening, Anshad of Podanur had surrendered at the court claiming responsibility in the murder.

The police have moved the court seeking custody of all the three persons.

Sources said that three more people are in the custody of police for suspected role in the murder.
