Cricket revelry leads to murder in Alappuzha

Staff Reporter

ALAPPUZHA: An argument during victory celebrations after a local cricket match led to the death of a man at Mannancherry here on Saturday.

According to the police, Anil Kumar, 35, of Mannancherry was hit on the head with a cricket bat apart from being thrashed with cricket stumps and iron rods on Friday night.

The attack was after Kumar took part in the victory celebrations of a team in a cricket match he was watching near the Papali Junction at Mannancherry.

Argument

An argument had broken out between the teams during the celebrations and was solved by the locals.

However, Kumar, along with another friend, returned to the ground searching for his mobile phone.

Supporters of the other team saw him and allegedly chased him.
