Harish, a graduate, is working in a courier firm, and was staying with his friend Ajay. According to Ajay, Harish went to a fast food stall near Ekambaranathar temple in Kancheepuram on Tuesday afternoon. “He saw a crowd near the food stall and went to see what happened there. There was already a clash going on between men of VR Manivannan alias Naina, a an anti-national, who is said to be the right-hand of don Sridhar Dhanapal, and another group. But Naina’s men, roughly about 50 in numbers, mistook Harish for a rival group member and thrashed him with wooden logs,” said Ajay.
