Three people were today arrested in connection with a murder of a local CPI(M) leader at nearby Palloor here on May 7, police said.
While the arrests have been confirmed, Mahe police sources have not given the details of those arrested.
Babu, a CPI(M) worker and former councillor of Mahe, was hacked to death on May 7 night at Palloor with the party alleging that BJP was behind the attack.
Shortly after the incident, in an apparent retaliatory attack, a BJP worker, Shemij, was pulled out from his auto-rickshaw and killed.
Both CPI(M) and BJP had observed hartal protesting against the two murders.
Kerala Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan, had visited Babu's house on Saturday night and spent some time with the bereaved family.
