Unidentified gang hurls country bomb at car in Tuticorin

An accused in a murder case was allegedly killed by a group of unidentified persons here on Tuesday while he was returning from the court here to his house at Kurumbur.

The police said Subramanian (32), an accused in the murder of an industrialist in the district on September 4, 2005, was returning home with his friend Perumal and relative Thomas, in a car, after appearing before a judicial magistrate.

While the car was negotiating a culvert near Mullakadu on Tuticorin-Tiruchendur State highway, six persons jumped in front of the car and hurled a country bomb at the vehicle.

Though the bomb did not injure anyone inside the car, the group attacked Subramanian with a sickle. He died on the spot. Perumal, who escaped unhurt, rushed to the nearby Muthiapuram police station and reported the matter.

A team led by Superintendent of Police John Nicholson launched an investigation.
