Malappuram: In connection with the murder of Mankada native Ayisha (77), the police arrested the her granddaughter’s husband Nishad Ali. He murdered Ayisha while robbing the place, police said.
Ayisha was found dead in the toilet of her house on July 17. Her ornaments were missing. She was living alone in her house and used to go to her son’s place at night. The postmortem report stated choking as the reason for death.
The police enquiry did not reach a conclusion in the beginning and the relatives and neighbours started protesting against the police.
Following this, the police focused the inquiry on the family members of Ayisha. Nishad absconded as he realised that the police would nab him soon. However, he was nabbed from Kozhikode.
Nishad is a computer science teacher at a private institute. He had huge financial liabilities and planned the robbery to repay this, it is learnt.
