Mysore/Mysuru: Devaraja Police have cracked an eight-year-old attempt to murder case by arresting three accused on Aug. 31 besides seizing the two-wheeler used for the crime.

The arrested are 28-year-old Salim Pasha of Gandhinagar, 29-year-old Salman Pasha of N.R. Mohalla and 32-year-old Ismail Khan of Lashkar Mohalla.

During interrogation, the accused are said to have confessed of committing the crime and based on the information provided by them, the Police have seized the two-wheeler used for the crime.

The Police also came to know that the accused, after committing the crime, had fled to Bengaluru and then to Dubai and had stayed there for a few years before returning to the country.

Devaraja Police, who had registered a case, had taken up the investigation, but the case was transferred to the City Crime Branch (CCB) as it was considered as a sensitive case. Though the CCB took up the investigation, the case was temporarily closed as the accused were not traced.
