Kottayam: A man who went missing from Aryadu in Alappuzha was found to have been murdered and buried under the floor of a house in Changanassery.
Bindumon, aged 43, was missing since September 26. The Changanassery Police exhumed his body after digging up the newly laid concrete floor of the annexe of the house of Muthukumar, an acquaintance of Bindumon.
Bindumon’s bike was found from Puthupally on Friday.
Bindumon, who was associated with the BJP, was a resident of ward 3 of Aryadu Panchayath. He was the son of Purushan of Kizhakke Thayyil House and was unmarried.
His mother had filed a complaint with the Alappuzha North Police on September 28 stating that he was missing.
As per the preliminary information of the police, Bindumon had left home after coming to know about the death of a relative in Chambakulam. At Thiruvalla, his mobile phone had gone out of the network coverage area.
In further investigation, the mobile showed a signal tower location near the AC Colony in Changanassery.
The subsequent trail led the police to Muthukumar’s house at the AC Colony.
On inspection, the police found that the floor of the annexe of his house was freshly concreted. Suspecting that Muthukumar had murdered and buried the body, the police dug up the floor.
The police team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police, Changanassery, conducted the inspection at the house.
The forensic team, fingerprint experts, and the dog squad had reached the spot for the inspection.
