Kollam: One of the main accused in the solar scam Biju Radhakirshnan (39), who was arrested from Ramnagar locality in Coimbatore on Monday, has reportedly admitted to murdering his first wife Reshmi in 2006.
The Crime Branch team headed by Deputy Superintendent of Police C.G. Suresh Kumar which is probing into the murder case Tuesday informed the court that Biju has confessed to killing his first wife.
Reshmi was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the bathroom of her house on February 4, 2006. Initially, Biju said his wife collapsed in the bathroom and had a natural death. However, the relatives of Reshmi raised suspicion over the death, as she had complained earlier of a troubled relationship with Biju.
Kottarakkara CJM court, where Biju was produced after he was brought to Kerala by the police, remanded him in judicial custody for 14 days. He was later taken to the Kottarakkara sub-jail.
The court will consider the probing team’s plea seeking his custody on Wednesday.
