Police confirm Reshma's death as homicide, recover suicide note of accused Arun
Idukki: The death of Reshma, a 17-year-old student who was found dead at Vandithara here, has been confirmed as murder. Police recovered the suicide note of Arun, paternal uncle of the deceased who is suspected as accused in the case. The suicide note confirmed that Reshma’s death was a case of deliberate homicide.
Police recovered the suicide note from Arun’s room at Rajakumari. The letter, which was addressed to his friends, carried 10 pages.
In the letter, Arun vowed that he will kill Reshma for cheating him and then end his life. He also wrote to his friends that he will not meet them again.
Arun’s letter also revealed that Reshma was in a relationship with him earlier but later she tried to convince him to step back from the relationship.
Police suspect that he might have taken the girl to the riverside after picking her up from the school. The probe team also assumed that Arun committed suicide after writing the letter. But the police also suspect that the letter could be a deliberate attempt to mislead the investigation.
