Man picked up for brawl accidentally confesses to two murders

A man who was picked up for a drunken brawl on Saturday confessed to two murders after mista­kenly assuming that he was nabbed by police for the murders, subsequently leading to the arrest of six people.

Four members of a family and two others were arrested for the murder of two people over property worth several millions of rupees over a six-month period, reported Malaysia Nanban.

Police had picked up Dosai Kumar, 31, for his involvement in a drunken brawl near a liquor outlet in Chen­nai, Tamil Nadu. But before they could question him, he confessed to a murder by telling the police that he had disposed the body of a 37-year-old man D. Mani in Sembarambak­kam Lake near Nazarathpet.

The body was recovered from the lake on Aug 26, following which the police had registered a case of suspicious death and sent it for a postmortem. Kumar also told police that he had murdered Mani's father De­­varajan, 65, in March for a sum of Rs1 lakh (RM5,210).

All along, Devarajan's family members had claimed that he died of heart attack. Police are now accu­sing Devarajan's wife Bhavani, daughter Bharathi, son Thyagarajan and Bharathi's husband Selvam, of plotting Devarajan's death.
