Speaking to newsmen here the city DCP S Praveen Kumar said at least five persons were involved in the incident who were engaged by the former judge to eliminate the woman. An acquaintance of the judge?s family had negotiated with the contract killers.

On subsequent search, police recovered around Rs 1.5 lakh from the house of one of the arrested persons, which was part of the Rs 3.5 lakh contract money they were paid by the former judge?s family.
