The attackers slammed the vehicle into the car in which Nidhin was travelling. He was then pulled out and hacked to death. The attackers escaped in another vehicle after committing the crime.
Thannyam native Adarsh was murdered in July 2020. The murder was a result of rivalry between rival gangs. Nidhin was the eighth accused in the case and was booked on charges including protecting the accused and helping them abscond.
