The accused are Shiva alias Rudra, Naveen, Polavan and Rajesh.

Meanwhile, the Yelahanka police arrested Gajendra, Suresh, Govindraju and Satish in connection with the same case. The search is on for another three to five accused whose involvement in the murder case confirmed, said police sources.

The prime accused in the case is one Shiva alias Shashikumar, a constable, who was arrested by Thammaiah in a kidnap case.

He was imprisoned at Mandya jail where he came in contact with other accused in the jail and hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Thammaiah to settle scores.
