Chen­nai: A 42-year-old man was al­legedly mur­dered by his co-work­ers at an un­der­con­struc­tion build­ing in My­la­pore on Satur­day night. The de­ceased was iden­ti­fied as Abra­ham Lin­coln (42) from Villupu­ram. At around 9.45pm, Lin­coln was booz­ing with two of his co-work­ers, A Au­gus­tine (42) and K Manikan­dan (35). “When a quar­rel erupted be­tween the trio, Au­gus­tine and Manikan­dan at­tacked Lin­coln with wooden logs and stones, mur­der­ing him on the spot,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer. Lin­coln’s body was sent to the Roy­apet­tah Govern­ment hospi­tal for post-mortem. The My­la­pore po­lice reg­is­tered a case and ar­rested Au­gus­tine and Manikan­dan.
