KANNUR : The accused who got arrested in connection with the hacking to death of youth Congress leader Shuhaib in Mattanur will be produced for an identification parade on today. The identification parade of Akash Thillankeri and Rijin Raj will happen at the special jail in kannur. Mean while, the police are still struggling to catch the other accused in the case even 10 days after the murder. There has been no progress in the investigation so far after the arrest of Akash and Rijin.
The police had raided many parts of the district under the leadership of the district police chief on Thursday night to catch the other culprits. Though the police have got information about their hideouts they are unable to reach there. This shows that they are in extremely secured locations .
The police have got information that it was Akash Thillankeri who arranged the vehicle for the culprits to travel. It has been found out that Akash had reached thaliparambu the day before the murder. Though the police have conducted an extensive search even extending to the district of Wayanad, the vehicle could not be found. The police says that there were another 3 more members besides akash and Rijin Raj in the gang of men that attacked Shuhaib. They say that two among them are DYFI members from areas of Thillankeri and Mattanur. The Police also say that these men have got the backing of the local CPM leadership.
The police is thinking that they would get a better idea about the conspiracy behind this murder if they could question Akash and Rijin in custody after the identification parade.
