Killer Doctor Continues to Elude Police after 17 Years in Hiding
KANNUR: 17 years after she killed her lover, the Tamil Nadu crime branch (CB) is still on the lookout for Dr Omana Edadan, who vanished after securing bail. Sources said CB got a tipoff about the people who had helped her escape to Malaysia, where she is staying with a Payyannur native.
“It is a pretty old case and the accused has reportedly gone abroad without leaving any trace. It will be really tough to follow the trail. It is possible that she has changed her identity and appearance. This will make it difficult to nab her,” police said.
On July 11, 1996 Omana allegedly killed her lover, P Muraleedharan, a Payyannur-based contractor, by administering poison in the retiring room of the Ooty railway station and later chopped his body into pieces and stuffed them in a suitcase. After failing to dispose the body in a gorge, she hired a taxi to Kodaikanal. The driver noticed that something was fishy and alerted the police, who then arrested Omana.
During her interrogation, she revealed that she was a divorcee. She added that Muraleedharan, who was already married, was drifting away from her and hence she decided to kill him. Though Ooty West police registered the case and filed the chargesheet on June 15, 1998; she allegedly got the trial process delayed by demanding copies of the chargesheet and other documents in English or Malayalam. She also managed to get bail in the case on January 21, 2001.
