Advocate C.P Udayabhanu arrested

Prominent criminal lawyer C.P Udayabhanu was arrested in a case related to the recent murder of a real estate dealer in Thrissur district, a day after the Kerala High Court dismissed his anticipatory bail plea.

A senior police official, who is part of the team probing the case, said Udayabhanu had been arrested.

Real estate dealer Rajeev was found murdered in a deserted building at Chalakudy last month.

Justice A. Hariprasad of the high court had on Tuesday turned down the lawyer’s anticipatory bail plea, holding that his custodial interrogation was highly essential.

Udayabhanu is the seventh accused in the case.

The prosecution had claimed that Udayabhanu, who has been arraigned the seventh accused in the case, had links with the 46-year-old real estate dealer and the persons arrested in connection with his killing.
