The Srirangam police have detained four persons, including a 21-year-old girl pursuing Chartered Accountancy course, in connection with the murder of a physiotherapist here a few days ago.

The victim Vijayakumar, 36, who hailed from Sendurai in Ariyalur district was employed as a physiotherapist in a private hospital at Chennai.

The partially decomposed body of Vijayakumar with multiple injuries was found along the Kallanai road beside the dry Cauvery riverbed on Wednesday. Police sources said the murder was committed on Sunday evening.

After booking a case of murder, the Srirangam police launched a probe and detained the girl S. Eswari, and three others – Marimuthu, 33, Kumar, 28, and Ganesan, 23. Eswari, whose parents reside in Tiruchi, was working and pursuing the Chartered Accountancy course in Chennai.

Sources said Vijayakumar, who was married, had become friendly with Eswari while travelling in a train. Thereafter, both are said to have remained in contact on various occasions.

Vijayakumar allegedly forced the girl to marry him but she was not inclined as he was already married. He is also said to have threatened the girl. Both had come to Tiruchi a few days ago.

She allegedly engaged Marimuthu, Kumar and Ganesan to eliminate Vijayakumar.

The girl reportedly asked Vijayakumar to come to Kallanai road on Sunday where he was murdered, said the sources. The girl is said to have hired the trio by giving them Rs. 50,000 to commit the murder.
