found shot dead at a remote farm in Mannarkkad in this north
Kerala district, police said here on Monday.
Another man, who is suspected to have fired at him on
Sunday night, was found in a critical condition after having
consumed poison at a nearby place this morning, they said.
The body of the victim, Fakruddin alias Sajeer,
hailing from Thiruvizhamkunnu here, was found in a pool of
blood at the shed of a remote plantain farm.
The incident came to light after Mahesh, who had
suspected to have killed the man, called a friend last night
and said he had killed Fakruddin.
“The person, who received the call, searched the place
and came across the body. When he alerted us, we rushed to the
spot,” a police officer said.
Mahesh, the suspected accused who consumed poison, was
said to be a friend of the deceased man and other details were
yet to be known, he said.
He was rushed to a private hospital here this morning
after he was found to have consumed poison and was later
shifted to the government medical college in Kozhikode as his
condition was critical.
A ballistic team already reached the spot and the
details of the weapon used for the crime were expected to be
ascertained after their examination, the official added.PTI
