One person has been arrested in connection with the murder of a 23-year-old Muslim man, Faizal, at Surathkal in Karnataka’s Dakshina Kannada district on July 28, Mangaluru police said on Sunday, adding that the person arrested is the owner of the car allegedly used by the assailants for the crime.
“We got the traces of a car — White Hyundai Eon car — while scanning the CCTV footage. Since the registration number was not clear in the footage, we had taken eight cars into custody and inquired their owners,” Mangaluru police commissioner N Shashi Kumar told reporters. “The owner of the car used in the attack was taken into custody on Saturday night on the outskirts of Surathkal.”
During the interrogation, the car owner, who also has three other vehicles, has disclosed vital information regarding who took the car from him, Kumar said. “Now he will be presented before the court and taken into custody. He will be further questioned from which we may get further information on those involved,” the commissioner said.
