A history-sheeter was hacked to death by a six-member gang near Ambattur railway station. The police have detained three suspects in connection with the revenge murder.
While Sathya died on the spot, the gang fled. Shocked passers-by alerted the Ambattur police, who retrieved the body and sent it to Kilpauk Medical College Hospital for post-mortem examination.
After an inquiry, the police found that Sathya was one of the accused in the murder of history-sheeter Radha, an aide of ‘Puliantope’ Chinna. Sathya came out on bail in the case three months ago. Radha’s gang members, who wanted revenge for the murder, hatched a plan to eliminate Sathya and hacked him to death in Ambattur.
A hunt has launched for other suspects and three men — Nagaraj, Rajkumar and Nizamuddin — were detained for interrogation. The investigation officer said that they would be remanded on Thursday.
