Kundara: The reinvestigation into the death of 34-year-old man here has revealed that he was murdered.

Two months ago, the Kundera police had concluded the death of Shaji, a local resident, as a case of suicide.

However, following a reinvestigation, police found that Shaji was killed. In connection with the case, the police have arrested his wife and two relatives.

Police had ignored the post-mortem report which said he was strangled to death.

It may be noted that the sub inspector and circle inspector, who have placed under suspension for the lapse in investigation into the death of a 10-year-old girl here, handled this case too.
