Chennai psycho killer nabbed near Madurai
The serial killer who has been identified as the son of Panchaksharam, Manthangal village in Vellore district, has many crimes to his name and was last year nabbed by the Chittoor police. He had, in March 2018, committed three murders in the neighbouring State of Andhra Pradesh and has been convicted five times, prior to that.
Recently, two people in an inebriated condition in the city fell victims to the killer and the police were on the lookout for him ever since, sources said.
It was learnt that Munuswamy was accused in several cases and was in jail for a few years. He was accused in 17 theft cases and a robbery in 2007. From 1992 onward, he was named accused in 28 cases in various police stations.
The Andhra Pradesh police had said earlier that Munuswamy killed three elderly women and the attacks always took place on Friday or Saturday nights.
The inter-State killer had also tried to sexually assault men, the police have said. However, he never used to touch the gold ornaments of women, but took with him small amounts of cash, they said.
