Tamil Nadu Police have arrested five accomplices of history-sheeter Guna, who is absconding after jumping bail for the past six months.
The arrests were made on Sunday. Guna is a habitual offender and is an accused in 24 criminal cases, including murder, attempt to murder, extortion, kidnapping, and landgrab in various police stations in the districts of Kancheepuram Chengalpattu and Tiruvallur.
The police had on Thursday met the industrial groups at Sriperumbudur and asked them to inform the police of any rowdy elements trying to extract money as a monthly fee. Guna, who is also a scrap dealer in Kancheepuram, was controlling his business through his accomplices, the police said. His wife Elammal is a ward councillor at Sriperumbudur Panchayat Union and was picked up by the police for questioning on Sunday morning from her residence at Maduramangalam in Kancheepuram district.
