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.

Kevin, 23, allegedly abducted by a gang engaged by his fiancee Neenu's relatives, was found dead in a river in Kollam district on Monday.

As many as 14 people, including Neenu's parents – Chacko and Rehna - and brother Sanu Chacko, were booked in the case.

The initial autopsy report hinted that Kevin P Joseph could have been drowned. Sources said that the grievous injuries on his body were not the cause of death.

Situation tense

Tension prevailed at the Kottayam medical college hospital on Tuesday where the post-mortem was held. CPM workers tried to manhandle former Kerala minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan on his arrival at the hospital.

Heart-wrenching scenes were witnessed when Kevin's body was taken to his house in Nattassery. The funeral is service is being held at the Good Shepherd Church.

Relatives of Kevin P Joseph alleged that he was tortured and killed by the gang engaged by his fiancee's brother, two days after they filed a joint application for marriage registration at a sub-registrar office near here.

The abduction and killing of the man has triggered widespread protests by the Congress and other opposition parties in Kottayam district.

A dawn-to-dusk hartal called by the BJP and UDF in the district to protest the incident is under way.

Kevin and his relative Aneesh were abducted early on Sunday from the latter's residence by the gang that arrived in three vehicles.The gang later left Aneesh by the roadside after torturing him brutally. He is currently admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital here.
