A Sri Lankan was murdered by two unidentified men near his house in Karumandapam. The 56-year-old man was a visa agent and was trying to get valid stay permits for people in the locality.
The victim, Selvendran has been residing in the city for long. However, he was found murdered near his house by police. Doctors at the government hospital declared him brought dead.
Upon investigation, police found that two people had murdered the man as several injury marks were found on his body. It was found that the person had previous enmity with certain members from the locality, which could have led to the murder. Police said that in all, a total of 12 cut marks were found on his body and several residents told police that they heard some sounds the night prior to the murder. The residents had tried to nab the culprit but on seeing the people, they escaped from the locality.
It is believed that only a few days ago the family of four had moved to the locality and a few members were constantly seen standing in the locality and their identities are being scrutinised suspecting that they could have murdered the 56-year-old. Police have now taken note of the Sri Lankan Tamils living in the locality and are believed to have zeroed in on a few persons to pick up the culprits. The body has been sent for postmortem to the government hospital and reports are awaited. (Source: Times Of India)
