Sreenivasan, Screengrab of CCTV visuals
Palakkad: In a new development in the probe into RSS worker Sreenivasan's murder, police have retrieved crucial CCTV visuals showing the pursuit of the accused.The visuals suggest that the accused were present during the autopsy of SDPI worker Subair who was hacked to death on Friday.
According to police, six are involved in Sreenivasan murder. Three were directly involved in hacking the person. ADGP Vijay Sakhare had informed that four of the accused are already identified.
It was on Saturday that Srinivasan, a former district leader and office-bearer of RSS, was attacked by a six-member gang at his motorbike shop in Melamuri here. This came barely 24 hours after the murder of Subair.
The twin murders that came back to back have been attributed to both communal and political rivalry. The CCTV visuals have come out amid this. The accused who hacked Srinivasan were present at the district hospital premises, where the autopsy of Subair happened. After examining the visuals, the police assumed that the accused hatched a conspiracy to murder Sreenivasan after camping at the hospital.
Apart from this, police have retrieved CCTV visuals from the city limits, in which the accused can be seen travelling.
