When police brought Mohanan to collect evidence

Kollam: Police booked a suspect in connection with the death of a woman, who was residing alone in a house at Vilakkupara in Kollam. The accused Mohanan (60) was arrested after he confessed to the crime during a detailed interrogation.

The body of the woman was found in her bedroom on February 26, 2022 evening. In the preliminary investigation itself, police inferred the death was a murder. The autopsy report revealed that she was strangled to death amid a sexual assault. Bones in the neck were broken and there were injuries on the chest, stomach, and lips of the lady.
