Chen­nai: A day af­ter a his­tory-sheeter was hacked to death, six men were ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the crime. The ar­rested ac­cused were iden­ti­fied as C Sathishku­mar (25) of Aya­pakkam, K Sasiku­mar (23) of Am­bat­tur, Kathir (24), Gokul (21), Sar­a­vanan (23) and Mon­ish (25). When A Di­nesh (28) of Per­am­bur was on his bike at 7.45 pm on Satur­day, a six-mem­ber gang way­laid them on Stephen­son Road and at­tacked Di­nesh with weapons. “The on­look­ers told po­lice that the men es­caped in au­torick­shaws. Po­lice chased them and in­ter­cepted one of the au­tos. Sathishku­mar and Sasiku­mar were handed over to Ot­teri po­lice along with the auto driver,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer. Po­lice nabbed the re­main­ing ac­cused overnight. “Di­nesh, a his­tory-sheeter, had threat­ened the sus­pects not to present them­selves be­fore the court in con­nec­tion with a mur­der case. Out of fear that he may kill them, the gang de­cided to elim­i­nate him,” said po­lice. ENS
