Personnel from the Neelankarai police station arrested a murder accused who went into hiding for three years in Mumbai even after a sessions court issued repeated non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against him.
On the orders of the City Police Commissioner, personnel have been executing pending non-bailable warrants. In line with this, sub-inspector S. Tamilanban and grade-I constable V. Ganesh went to Mumbai and arrested Amit Kumar Ranjan, 29, from Bihar, who is one of the key accused in the murder of a college student in 2010.
On July 4, 2010, Nirbhay Singh, 20, of Ranchi, a third-year engineering student in a private college in Maduravoyal, was riding on a motorcycle when a speeding car knocked him down. A group of students from the vehicle attacked him with clubs. A rift between two groups over the organising of engineering admissions in private universities allegedly led to the murder.
As many as 15 students, including Amit Kumar Ranjan, were arrested and remanded.
