Crime Patrol: Tamil Nadu Lawyer Couple Held for Murder of Woman (Episode 355, 356 on 11th, 12th April 2014)



The Inside Story

Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu

Lawyer Couple Arrested for Sensational Murder Case

The City Police took custody of a lawyer couple from Coimbatore on Thursday in connection with a high-profile murder case investigated by the Tamil Nadu Police. The arrested individuals, identified as E T Rajavel (47) and Mohana (38), were accused of murdering Rajavel's woman client and cremating the body at a public crematorium, pretending it was Mohana's body. They were apprehended at a private lodging in Kovalam by a police team led by the Deputy Police Commissioner.

The arrest was made based on specific information provided by the Coimbatore Police, and the couple will soon be handed over to the officials from the Rathnapuri Police. The crime, committed on December 11, 2011, was allegedly done by Rajavel to protect his wife from a multi-level marketing fraud case being investigated by the Odisha Police. The victim, Ammasai (45) from Sivananda Colony, had sought Rajavel's assistance in a property dispute with her husband.

Rajavel, along with his driver Palanisamy and friend Ponnarasu, reportedly strangled the woman at his office before taking the body to their residence for 'last rites' and subsequently cremating it at an electric crematorium. The incident came to light when Mohana, through a court order, tried to cancel the death certificate obtained from the Coimbatore Corporation. The Corporation officials alerted the police, leading to the unraveling of the mystery. The couple was tracked down and apprehended in Kovalam, where they had arrived in a hired cab.
