The paramour of a 32-year-old woman, who had beaten his lover’s husband to death, told police on Tuesday that they had initially scouted for poisonous snakes for several days to execute the murder.
They managed to catch a cobra at Pattanampudur near Sulur and released the snake in the victim’s bedroom two months ago. However, the reptile did not bite him and left the house a few hours later. Thus, they decided to beat the man to death. The woman paid her paramour Rs15,000 to get the job done. She also agreed to give him Rs 5 lakh to set up a gym in Irugur.
The arrested people were identified as L Sundaram alias Ram, 30, from Sri Nagar and his accomplice K Krishna alias Radhakrishna, 24, from Pattanampudur near Sulur. Ram owned a pet shop at Irugur and Krishna was an employee there.
On August 8, Ram, his paramour S Saradha, 32, and Krishna, murdered Saradha’s husband A Sakthivel, 35, using wooden logs at her residence and they dumped the body inside a ground level water tank. The city police arrested Saradha on August 9 for murdering her husband. She confessed to police that she wanted to kill her husband as she was having an affair. Ram and his accomplice Krishna were arrested by Singanallur (law & order) police on Tuesday. Ram told the police that he was residing in Chennai and moved to Coimbatore four years ago. His elder sister is a beautician working in a beauty parlour in Coimbatore city. He is a divorcee.
