Kasaragod, Nov 2: The district police nabbed one more accused in the Aboobacker Siddique abduction and murder case. 

J Asfan (26) a native of Bayar near Uppala was arrested by the special investigation team soon after he landed at the Calicut International Airport.

Asfan, who was allegedly part of the gang which murdered Siddique, had fled to UAE soon after committing the crime. 

He was nabbed by Bekal deputy SP CK Sunilkumar based on the information received by Kasaragod district police chief Vaibhav Saxena about his return from the UAE.

Saxena said that the accused had no option but to return to India as police were in the process of initiating a Red Corner notice against him and had also completed the formalities for impounding his passport.

Aboobacker Siddique from Seethangoli was murdered on June 26, 2022, after he was abducted and tortured by a quotation gang at Paivalike. 

Siddique was forced to return from the UAE on June 25 after his brother and friend were abducted by the same gang.

Four businessmen had allegedly engaged the gang to get back around Rs 50 lakh (in dirhams) they had given to Siddique to smuggle to Dubai. 

Siddique allegedly did not deliver the currency to the person in Dubai following which goons were engaged to bring him home and kidnap him. Police said that remaining five accused who had direct role in the kidnapping and murder will be nabbed soon.

Hindutva ideologue and Kannada writer S L Bhyrappa released ‘Tipu Nija Kanasugalu’, a book authored by Rangayana director Addanda C Cariyappa, at Vanaranga on the Rangayana premises in Mysuru on Sunday.

The book release programme was held amid tight police security as many historians and non-communal Kannadigas have been opposing the book, which demonises the Tiger of Mysore who died in the battlefield fighting against the colonial forces.

Each person was allowed to enter the venue only after a thorough security check.

Bhyrappa claimed that it is evident from historical records that Tipu was against Kannada.

“Several Persian and Parsi terms still exist in the revenue department. Attempts to change names of villages are also proof to that,” he said. 

Hardling Hindutva activist and former chairman of BJP government sponsored textbook revision committee Rohith Chakrathirtha, BJP MP Pratap Simha and activist Vadiraj were present.

The book is published by Ayodhya Publications and it has a prelude by Bhyrappa and back page content by Chakravarthy Sulibele.
