Sources from the police department tell OneIndia that investigators have a reason to believe that the orders to carry out this execution may have come from Kerala. Call records of the accused show that many calls were made to persons in the neighbouring state around the time of Rudresh's murder.
Sources claim that the investigation has also revealed that the accused persons had visited Kerala before Rudresh's murder. Members of the investigation team are likely to visit Kerala to probe the possibility.
The city police have arrested 5 people so far in connection to Rudresh's murder. The latest being Asim Shariff, the Bengaluru District Unit president of PFI. His arrest had rattled the PFI that staunchly backed him calling his arrest politically motivated.
