Mangaluru: Couple of days after taxi driver Ismail’s body was found, the police have arrested his wife Nabeesa, her alleged lover Jamal and another person named Riyaz in connection to his death. The police have confirmed that Ismail was murdered.

The trio was produced to court and then remanded to judicial custody.

Ismail, a resident of Farangipet, had left to Mudigere on February 16 on a trip, but never returned. His car was found abandoned in Neerakatte the next day. Blood stains were found in it.

After this news broke on the media, Nabeesa filed a missing complaint at the local police station.

The police team led by Inspector Ashok and Sub-Inspector Sudhakar, who took up investigation suspected the foul play of
Nabeesa due to her contradicting statements. As part of the investigation, they traced Ismail’s mobile location to Shiradi. They also traced the mobile location of Riyaz to the same area. Acting on this information, they obtained his call records and found that Riyaz had made numerous calls to Nabeesa and Jamal.

During investigation, Nabeesa had informed the police that she had removed money from an ATM to give it to her husband before he disappeared. When the police checked the footage of the CCTV installed in the ATM, they found out that Riyaz had accompanied her and that she had given money to him and not Ismail.

Riyaz knew Ismail since a year. Nabeesa and Jamal got him to kill Ismail for Rs 2.5 lakh. Nabeesa had payed Rs 70,000 as advance. Riyaz hired Ismail’s taxi to go to Mudigere. He got two of his aides Munaf and Shabbir with him on board. Ismail was addicted to alcohol. When they reached Shiradi, Riyaz and his men took Ismail to a secluded area on the pretext of consuming liquor and killed him. Later they came back in the same taxi and abandoned it in Neerakatte.

Munaf and Shabbir are absconding.
