The Irinjalakuda police said they arrested Surendran, 32, accused of bludgeoning women to death in what is called ‘ripper-model attacks,’ from his hideout at Vadamadurai in Coimbatore. He was brought to Irinjalakuda.

On December 17, he escaped from the sub-jail in Irinjalakuda, but was arrested from Sathyamangalam after two days. He is facing murder charge and was arrested in one case on September 10 last year. The Irinjalakuda police said the accused bludgeoned Maria, 80, wife of Alappatt Lonappan, to death in her house at Porithissery and escaped with gold jewellery weighing about 12 sovereigns. The police said he was involved in five more similar attacks.

On December 20, while he was in police custody, Surendran injured himself using the iron handle of a bucket in the toilet. Later, he was sent to Viyyur Jail. He was admitted to medical college hospital as he complained of being sick.
