Kerala student killing: Prime accused nabbed

The prime accused in the killing of an SFI leader in Kerala has been nabbed, said a senior police official.

Ernakulam Range IG, Vijay Sakhare said that the Campus Front leader Muhammed — who is the first accused in the killing of the Ernakulam Maharajas College student — Abhimanyu, has been taken into custody.

“We have got him. It’s a big breakthrough,” said Mr. Sakhare, without elaborating on the details.

“His arrest will be recorded in the evening”, he added.

Muhammed, a third year Arabic degree student in Maharaja’s College, allegedly organised a group of 15 to 17 men comprising activists of Popular Front of India (PFI), its political offshoot SDPI and student outfit Campus Front, to attack SFI activists in the college campus early this month.

Launching a state-wide crackdown on the activities of SDPI, PFI and Campus Front after the killing of Abhimanyu, police have taken their several workers into preventive custody.
