Tension in Tirupattur after clash

Staff Reporter

TIRUPATTUR: Tension prevailed in Tirupattur town on Tuesday following a clash between two groups on Monday night in which a 30-year-old man was stabbed to death.

According to a police official, 15-year-old Nazeer (name changed), son of Shakul Ahmed (48), had picked up a quarrel with two 17-year-old boys Ahmed and Mohideen (name changed) as they had teased a girl known to him. Following this, Ahmed and Mohideen along with the latter's brother had assaulted Nazeer.

Immediately, Nazeer called Sakthi (19) of Ambedkar Nagar over phone to come to the spot. Sakthi, in turn, brought Dakshinamoorthy and three others to the spot. However, Ahmed and Mohideen, along with a gang of 10 persons chased them away, saying that it was their area.

Sakthi returned with nine to 10 persons, including Saravanan (40), his brothers Logu (30) and Dakshinamoorthy (24) and Karian alias Ilayaraja (24), Damar Kumar (24), Damo alias Venkatesan (24) and Ramu (24). They attacked Thameen (30) with knives. He was stabbed in four places and died on the way to the Tirupattur Government Hospital.

Two others – Khaleem (22) and Abdul Wakab (30) of Ellaiamman Koil Street – were also attacked. They sustained injuries. Relatives of Thameen staged a road roko in Tirupattur on Tuesday demanding the arrest of the accused persons. The windshields of nearly 10 buses were damaged and tension prevailed in Tirupattur till Tuesday afternoon.

A police officer said more than 150 police personnel were deployed for security in various parts to prevent untoward incidents. Deputy Inspector General of Police, Vellore Range, H.M.
