Man hacked to death inside hotel
A 35-year-old man was hacked to death inside a restaurant, that is located near the Block Development Office and Court Complex, in full public view at Tiruttani in Tiruvallur district on Friday afternoon.
The police are trying to identify the suspects using CCTV cameras.
The deceased was identified as Mahesh of Veppampattu. On Friday, he had come to meet his friend who was arrested in a murder case and was brought to the court for trial. Then, he went to the restaurant to have lunch around 2.30 pm when the incident took place.
Four men carrying sickles reached the restaurant and started attacking Mahesh. As the gang hacked him to death, customers, including women and children, ran away from the spot in fear. The gang left the spot after making sure Mahesh is dead.
The footage showed women running away with their children and watching the murder from a distance. It also showed a woman, who was having food, unable to move in a state of shock.
In another murder that took place in Chennai, a 23-year-old two-wheeler mechanic was hacked to death in broad daylight in Madhavaram. The deceased was identified as G Karthik. “He was at his shop on Manali–Padi Road near Madhavaram when a gang of four men arrived there. Though Karthik tried to run away after seeing them, they chased him and hacked him to death,” the police said. His body was shifted to Stanley Medical College Hospital for post-mortem examination. The police are searching for the suspects.
