A man has been arrested in the case of the kidnapping and murder of a businessman in Chennai’s Adambakkam. It is learned that the murder took place in an argument over women’s issues.
Baskaran, a businessman from Adambakkam, Chennai, has been doing construction work along with his son Karthik. The day before yesterday, he left his house in Adambakkam by car at 4 pm and did not return home.
After this, when the son Karthik searched for the location of the car used by his father using GPS, it was revealed that the car was located near the IAS IPS residence near Virugampakkam Natesan Street.
Shocked by the absence of his father in the car, the son Karthik lodged a complaint at the Adampakkam police station at one o’clock in the morning. In this regard, the Adhambakkum police registered a case and launched an intensive search.
In this situation yesterday morning at 6 o’clock, Bhaskaran was found with blood injuries with his hands and feet tied on the Koovam riverside road on Nelkunram Road, Chinmaya Nagar.
While the Virugampakkam police have registered a case and are investigating, the fact that two consecutive withdrawals from his bank account through an ATM last night raised serious suspicion.
During the investigation, it was revealed that Bhaskaran also acted as a financier for some cinema films through the money received from the construction business. And it came to light yesterday evening when Ganesan, a cinema financier who lived in a private apartment in Virugampakkam area, came home.
After this, when the police went there, Ganesan went into hiding. In an inquiry conducted with the neighbours, they said that when Ganesan’s wife is not at home, more women come and complain about this to his wife.
In this situation, the police arrested Ganesan this morning with the help of a cell phone number tower kept by a woman engaged in sex work near Cholavaram.
Ganesan, who was arrested, had been running a brothel in Virukampakkam area for the past 5 years under the guise of finance business, and it was revealed that Bhaskaran, who had been murdered, had been regularly visiting the brothel for 2 years.
It was revealed that Bhaskaran had contacted Ganesan the night before yesterday and asked him to arrange 2 girls and then went into a drunken state, and because the girls were late in arriving, there was an argument between the two.
It is said that Bhaskaran had slandered Ganesan’s family and was beaten to death with a stick.
Police investigation revealed that Baskaran was hit on the head and died when he was pushed down. Because of this, they tied his hands and feet, wrapped him in a plastic cover, carried him on his shoulder, put him on a two-wheeler and took him to Chinmaya Nagar Coovam River in the middle of the night.
