Arrest made on a petition by a woman entrepreneur
The Town North police arrested two persons accused of stealing furniture, refrigerator, and freezer from an eatery at Kaloor that was not being operated for a while.
The arrested are Sanjay, 23, and Rajesh, 22, both residents of Thripunithura. They were the fifth and sixth accused in the case and were charged with taking away valuables on a tipper lorry. The first accused, Raju, and fourth accused, Binoy, had already been arrested.
The arrest was made on a petition filed by the woman entrepreneur who used to run the eatery since 2015. Following a dispute between the entrepreneur and the building owner over the alleged expiry of lease agreement in 2019, the eatery had remained closed.
According to the police, a group led by Raju had forcibly entered the eatery and taken away the valuables. A similar attempt six days later was foiled on the intervention of the police.
Sanjay also stands accused of robbing a mobile phone and money from a person near Kaloor on October 10.
A person accused of having sexually exploited a woman and usurped her money after promising to marry her before leaving the country two years ago was arrested on his return at the Kochi airport on Friday.
A lookout notice had been issued for Abdul Khadar, 47, of Alathur after the woman filed a petition. The emigration officials detained him on arrival.
Later, the Alathur police took him away in an ambulance in compliance with the COVID-19 protocol.
