Kozhikode: The police officially filed a comprehensive chargesheet on Friday pertaining to the murder of Kozhikode businessman Siddique. The extensive 3000-page chargesheet was presented before the Kozhikode judicial first-class magistrate. Police have disclosed that Siddique fell victim to a honey trap that ultimately led to his tragic demise.
Within the chargesheet, the primary and secondary accused have been identified as Mohammed Shibili (22) and Khadijath Farhana (19) respectively. The contents of the chargesheet outline the criminal duo’s involvement in not only robbing Siddique of his vehicle but also making off with a sum of Rs. 1.5 lakh in cash.
Siddique (58) of Ezhoor Mecheri in Malappuram’ Tirur, who ran a hotel in Olavanna, was brutally slain at a lodge in Eranhipalam on May 18.
According to police reports, the accused individuals brutally cut Siddique’s body using an electric saw, dividing it into three sections.
