Chacko was strangled to death and his body was burnt inside a car near Kunnam in Mavelikara. Sukumara Kurup allegedly committed the crime to fake his own death and claim an insurance amount of INR 800,000($75,000)(1984 dollar($) rate was 10.74) by killing Chacko who bore a resemblance with him. Sukumara Kurup is supposed to have fled abroad after the incident, while two of his co-accused, driver Ponnappan and brother-in-law Bhaskar Pillai, were sentenced to a life-term imprisonment.
According to the police, Sukumara Kurup, is still on the list of absconding accused since January 1984.
The Chacko murder case is one of the longest-standing cases in the judicial history of Kerala.
The case again caught media attention during the mid-2000s when there were reports on Sukumara Kurup look-alikes in various parts of India and Kerala. Even today, Kurup still remains untraced.
