Tiruchirappalli/UNI: An armed gang hacked a local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) functionary to death at the crowded Gandhi Market in full public view here on Monday.

Police said the victim Vijayaraghu, a resident of Uppupaarai locality went to a tea shop when a three- member gang attacked him brutally with sickles, while the shell-shocked public ran helter-skelter on seeing the murder.

The assailants fled the scene after committing the murder.

Gandhi Market police rushed to the spot and took a severely wounded Vijayaraghu to the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile, tension prevailed for some time near the hospital, when a large number of BJP men staged a protest demanding immediate arrest of the assailants. They also accused involvement of Islamic persons behind the murder. Senior police officers intervened and pacified the protesters.

Vijayaraghu was the BJP’s Palakkarai Zonal Secretary. He was a contractor for the two-wheeler parking stand near the Gandhi Market.

Gandhi Market police have registered a case and are investigating to find out the motive behind the murder.
