Missing case of Tanur family reaches turning point as relative refuses to undergo narco test
Malappuram: The investigation into the missing case of a mother and children in Tanur has reached a turning point. The mother and children were reported missing 6 years back. Malappuram Crime Branch has been investigating the case for more than 2 years. The Crime Branch officers had sought the court’s permission to conduct narco analysis test on one of the suspects. However, the suspect informed the court the other day that he was not ready to take the test. Following this, the Crime Branch decided to pursue other means of investigation.
Khadeeja (42), wife of deceased Sainuddin and their twin children Shihabuddin (12) and Shajina (12) went missing under mysterious circumstances on April 27, 2014. There was no information regarding Khadeeja and the children after they left from Perinthalmanna to their home in Omachappuzha. The investigation by local police did not yield any result even after many years. Following this, Malappuram Crime Branch took up the investigation.
Crime Branch officers sought answers to many questions including where did Khadeeja and children go and what happened to them. The officers carried out the investigation secretly in Omachappuzha and other areas and inspected several phone calls. That is when they decided to carry out narco analysis on one of the relatives of Khadeeja’s husband. However, the relative informed the court that he was not ready to undergo the test. This has increased the curiosity around the case.
Khadeeja was the second wife of Sainuddin. It is reported that Sainuddin’s family opposed his relationship with Khadeeja. After Sainuddin’s death, there were efforts to portray Khadeeja in a bad light.
