The Chavara South police claim to have received some concrete information that the man had been killed by the members of his own family two years ago. The police have also identified a spot in the area where the body is suspected to be buried.

The police said that the family members had not lodged any man missing case. However, local residents in the area submitted a petition on the issue to the Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy, during his mass contact programme here. It was on the basis of this petition that the police began investigating the case. In the interim, an anonymous letter that Aravindakshan had been murdered was received by the police. The letter also mentioned the site where the body had been buried.

In the presence of top police officers and the RDO, the site in question will be inspected. The suspected spot is likely to be dug up, the police said. Aravindakshan was self-employed as a cane artisan. ]For some time prior to his disappearance, he could not find enough work to sustain his family. The police said he used to come home in an inebriated state most nights and this led to quarrels in the house.
