Two SI murderers shot dead in encounter


Two men allegedly invol­ved in the brutal murder of sub-inspector Alwin Sudan during Marudh­upandiar Guru pooja were shot de­ad in a police encounter ne­ar Manama­durai on Friday.

Police sources told DC that the main accused M. Prabhu, 27, and his close associate M. Barathi, 25, had escaped when they were being taken from Madurai central prison to Sivagangai court to be pr­o­duced in connection with an case lodged under the SC\ST Act.

They attacked the escort party and esca­p­ed from their custody wh­en the vehicle was cro­ssing Anna Nagar in Madurai.

Police launched a search and later in the afternoon found out that the two were hiding in Thee­t­h­anpettai village near Ka­a­lpirivu. A police team led by Manamadurai DSP Ve­l­ladurai had surrounded th­em and asked them to su­rrender.

The duo inst­e­ad hurled petrol bombs at the police jeep and atta­ck­ed a constable. The police opened fire in self-defense in which both were killed on the spot, a senior offici­al claimed. Their bodies were brought to Govern­ment Rajaji Hospital in Madurai late at night.

The two were part of a gang proceeding to pay homage to Marudhu brot­h­ers on the occasion of the 211th guru pooja at Vem­bathur near Tiru­pp­uva­n­am in Sivagangai di­s­t­rict on October 27 stab­bed Alwin Sudan to death. The gang had also inflicted injuries on two police constables accompanying the sub-inspector.

The brutal murder happened when a police team led by the then Manamadurai DSP Karunanidhi had followed the gang to nab them after they picked a quarrel with another gro­up. On being confronted, they turned violent and killed the SI.
