Madurai: A DMK municipal councillor is among four persons arrested in connection with the murder of a six-year-old boy over a land dispute.

Councillor Selvaraj of nearby Melur, the prime accused in the murder of the boy on November 16, was arrested along with three of his accomplices last evening, police said today.

All the four were produced before a judicial magistrate court and remanded to custody.

Kishorekumar, son of Rajkumar and Sujitha, was murdered in Malampatti near Melur. Sujitha was living with her mother, Lalitha for some years due to some misunderstanding with her husband.

Lalitha had gone to Malampatti along with Kishorekumar for reconciliation of a dispute over land owned by her late husband and allegedly encroached by one Packiam. During heated arguments, the aides of Packiam murdered the boy in front of Lalitha.
