Sharing details about the role of Harshith, the police said that he had helped the accused by providing shelter and also used his car to ferry them after they abandoned the car they had used while killing Fazil.

Seven arrests have been made in the case so far. Fazil, a resident of Mangalapete in Surathkal, was attacked on the night of July 28 when he was standing outside a shop in Surathkal town. He died in a hospital later.
