Kottayam: The Kerala police on Tuesday arrested the father and brother of Kerala woman Neenu Chacko whose fiance was found murdered in Kollam on Monday in a suspected case of honour killing. They had tried to seek refuge at a friend's house in Kannur but was turned away. They then surrendered at the police station.
