History-sheeter hacked to death
A gang of five attack him with sharp weapons at Tondiarpet
A 37-year-old rowdy was hacked near his house in Tondiarpet on Monday evening. He succumbed to injuries in the early hours of Tuesday.
According to police, Jeeva, 37, of Thilakar Nagar, Tondiarpet, had been a close aide of gangster Kalvettu Ravi. He was involved in many murders, including that of DMK functionary Othavadai Shanmugam, a few years ago.
Police claim that of late, he had not been involved in any anti-social activity.
On Monday he was standing outside his house in Tondiarpet, when a gang of five men hacked him with sharp weapons. They fled the spot leaving him in a pool of blood. Residents rushed him to the Stanley Government General hospital.
The police have registered a case.
They suspect that the murder would be linked to previous rivalry.
Further investigation is under way.
