Four persons, hailing from Pudukottai, were arrested on Tuesday for murdering a 75-year-old man and looting Rs.10 lakh worth banian rolls from a godown near Palladam in Tirupur district a week ago.

The man was found murdered, with hands and legs tied on November 12 in a godown and Rs.10 lakh worth banian rolls missing.

CCTV footage revealed the presence of a goods van near the godown, which was found to be a stolen vehicle and later abandoned near Karur, police said.

Further investigation revealed the involvement of one Suresh, a milk van driver, hailing from Kulathur in Pudukkottai district and working in Tirupur. His three accomplices, Bharathi,
