Haripad police had registered a case on the abduction. Police suspect that Arun's vehicle was used for the CPM leader's murder at Thiruvalla. After killing Sandeep, the accused went to the house of Ratheesh at Karuvatta, who hired them for the 'quotation' against Arun. It is revealed that Arun and his friends set fire on Ratheesh's bike on October 11 following a dispute. As the settlement talks failed, Ratheesh hired the quotation gang.
