In a sordid affair, a woman who gave a contract to kill her husband has been arrested along with her paramour and the goons hired for the purpose. According to the police, those nabbed are, Sujatha, a native of Tirur in Thrissur, her lover Suresh Babu and four gang members.
The goons had made an attempt to kill Sujatha’s husband Krishna Kumar with a hit-and-run strategy on Monday. Krishna Kumar, who suffered severe injuries in the incident, is now undergoing treatment.
An unusual accident
The plot and its execution came to light with a car accident that took place at Tirur early on Monday. At 5.30 am, Kumar, a farmer who has leased land in Wayanad, was hit by a car. He had set out from his house very early to proceed to Wayanad.
While walking along the road, Kumar noticed a car parked on the road. The vehicle soon reversed and hit him. Kumar was thrown to the ground on the impact and suffered fractures on his shoulder and leg. Luckily, his life was spared.
But doubts crept into Kumar’s mind. Why did the car hit him even though he was walking on the side of the road? Wasn’t the incident deliberate?
Meanwhile, Sujatha reminded Kumar that there would be no use filing a complaint. He felt something was amiss as he was aware of the affair between his wife and Suresh Babu, a bus driver.
Kumar soon traced the registration number of the vehicle that caused the accident and called the SI of police at Viyyur to inform him of the matter.
The first thing that the police did was to trace the vehicle owner. As the owner said that he had let out the car, the police enquired about the persons who had rented the vehicle. They found that Omanakuttan, a man with criminal record hailing from Vadakkanchery in Thrissur, had taken the car.
Soon the police were able to pick up Omanakuttan. His aides Sharafuddeen, Muhemmadali and Sarath too were subsequently taken into custody. Omanakuttan opened up before the police and told them everything that he knew about the case.
Babu, a native of Kinalloor, hired the goons by offering them Rs 4 lakh. He gave an advance of Rs 15,000. The target and the ways to identify him were handed over to the killers.
A plan was prepared to carry out the murder when Kumar headed to Wayanad on Monday. The killers assembled in a car which was parked on the road near the victim’s house. Kumar woke up by 4.30 am that day and when he went to the washroom, his wife called her lover, who passed on the information to the goons.
The goons presumed that Kumar would walk along the left side of the road and parked the car accordingly to hit him. However, Kumar, after covering a small distance on the left, crossed to the right. This forced the gang to reverse the car. The unusual movement of the car made him cautious and he walked very carefully along the side of the road. As several people were engaged in morning walk, the goons left in a huff after hitting their target.
When the mystery behind the accident was unravelled, the police arrested his wife, paramour and the goons. When the police arrived at their house to arrest Sujatha, she told Kumar, “I’ve committed a folly; pardon me.” To which he replied, “I loved you so much, still you wanted me dead.”
The words even moved the police officers who were witness to the scene.
Sujatha used to take their children to school in a private bus when Kumar was in Wayanad. Babu was the driver of this bus. Sujatha’s plan was to live with Babu after killing her husband.
