Kerala Police on Friday arrested a migrant worker from Firozabad district in UP in connection with a triple murder reported in Kottayam district.
The worker, identified as Narendra Kumar, was nabbed from his house in Firozabad. He had been working with a dry clean unit in Kottayam for the past two months.
The unit was run by retired government employee M Lalason, his wife Prasanna Kumari, and their elder son Praveen Lal. The bodies of Lalason, his wife and son were found in their dry cleaning unit near Kottayam on Sunday morning.
Police said Kumar would be produced before a local magistrate court in Firozabad on Saturday, before being taken to Kottayam. In a raid held at Kumar’s house, police said they recovered Lal’s cellphone and bag. As ornaments and money were missing from the victims’ house, police suspect that robbery was the motive behind the crime.
