KOCHI: A Myanmarese worker was found murdered in the room, where he was staying in the city. The Palarivattom police have arrested another Myanmarese in this connection.
According to the police, Joseph, 27, who was found murdered on Thursday early morning, had met Thomas, 31, at a Bible College in Bangalore, where they were both studying theology. Together they moved to another Bible College in Thiruvalla for higher studies a couple of years ago. They were working as part-time employees at a hotel in Palarivattom during vacation. The two were staying at Palarivattom along with three others from West Bengal and one from Mizoram, all employees of the hotel. Under a sudden provocation, Thomas smashed Joseph's head with concrete blocks and iron bar. The incident occurred at 2.30 a.m. The roommates panicked and fled on seeing the attack. They were later questioned by the Palarivattom police for gathering information about the crime.
Even though Thomas confessed the crime, the police are yet to form a clear idea on what made him do it. The body of Joseph was shifted to General Hospital here for autopsy, and his relatives were alerted. Thomas was produced before Aluva Judicial First Class Magistrate court.
