CBCID police, investigating the murder case of Hindu Munnani functionary Sasikumar a year ago, arrested one Subair.
Sasikumar was murdered with sickles by a gang in two motorcycles on September 22 night last year when he was returning home. This triggered a communal flare up during his funeral the next day.
The main accused in the case, Saddam Hussain, was arrested two months ago and search was on for his accomplice Mubarak, said to be the mastermind behind the murder. On information that Subair was involved in the attack, police tracked him last evening at Mullapadi Railway Gate near Pollachi. The youth is to be produced before Judicial Magistrate court for remand, police said.
