    For all those who are commenting, we should not interpret things till the truth comes out. Please respect the deceased four. We should not hurt them as they are not there to justify their position. Now the story will come out only based on the accused's statement. The truth will come out only after police verify the accused's statement through facts. Which will take some time. Till such time it is only story not truth.

    It means he is still a suspect. Can't the mother-in-law identify him or even that girl whom he threatened on his way out? What is preventing Police in formally arresting him? A simultaneous investigation into the income and assets of Chougule and the victim colleague is not a bad idea. Just love angle alone cannot explain his murderous intent unless he has past history of violence. And yes, at that level of smuggling last time, people involved were in bureaucracy in Kerala were all the way up to CM's office.

    Since he knew the house and family members, haseena's mother in law can quickly recognize him...Secondly, his absence for duty and hiding at Kuduchi...Very confusing....train moves without track...

    this case should not be the fate like Soujanya case. Whoever the murderer harshest punishment should be awarded, and it should be an example and deterrent for future criminals.

    As the guy worked earlier in force, he would know ways to destroy evidences.... Lot of time was available with him before he was finally caught due to usual mistake of modern culprits ( switching on the mobile phone)... It will be quite a task to open his mouth as he is a trained CRPF man... Killing the innocents was too barbaric for whatever he had against his colleague... Let us wish the police all the very best to get to each evidence so that legal process can be swift...

    'U' Turn because of Big Fish involvement. If smuggling is involved, big fish will be there. They can't name big sharks. If only boothai and bondas they will notify public as soon as they catch.. This is my personal opinion. Everyone dont take it seriously.
