Chennai: The Tiruvallur police on Thursday arrested nine people including three minor girls for the murder of a Mannivakkam college student whose body was exhumed at Eechangadu near Arambakkam on Saturday.
Police said that the arrested minor girls — two school students and one from a college — were sent to an observation home. While the main accused — Ashok Kumar, 21, of Kandigai village and Levin, 22 of Red Hills — surrendered on Tuesday, the other accused were identified as Moses, 21, Stephan, 21, Praveen Kumar, 21, and Jeganadhan, 20, of Ponneri. Police said they were employed at factories in the locality.
The deceased college student — Premkumar of Mannivakkam, — threatened the two schoolgirls with recordings of their phone conversations and a few videos and extorted 50,000 from each. He even warned that he would show up at their houses if they did not part with the money.
One of the girls then approached her elder sister, a college student, who in turn sought help from Ashok Kumar, her Instagram friend, police said.
As instructed by Ashok Kumar, the girls asked Prem Kumar to come to an appointed spot in Red Hills. They had asked him to erase their photographs and phone recordings in Prem Kumar’s possession, but he and his friends kidnapped Prem Kumar on a two-wheeler and took him to Eachangadu where the gang members smoked ganja. Premkumar’s friend, who accompanied him to the spot, fled and after Ashok and the others began to attack Prem Kumar. “The girls were part of the crime as they did not approach us till the body was exhumed,” said an officer.
