Advocate Udayabhanu remanded in judicial custody

Advocate Udayabhanu, who had been arrested in connection with the murder of real estate broker V.A Rajeev, was remanded in judicial custody for 14 days on Thursday.

He was sent to the sub-jail at Irinjalakuda.

There is clear evidence against Udayabhanu for criminal conspiracy in the case, the remand report noted. If he was given bail, he might influence the witnesses, the police said.

However, Udayabhanu said that the murder of Rajeev was a mistake by four goondas and he had no role in it.

He said he just wanted to get the real estate documents signed by Rajeev. The police arrested Udayabhanu from his relative’s house at Tripunithura on Wednesday night. He was interrogated at the DySP office at Chalakudy.

He is the seventh accused in the case.

The body of Rajeev, 46, was found in an uninhabited building at Thavalappara on September 29.
