Chennai, May 19 (BPNS)

The Greater Chennai Police has commenced a hunt for four killers and alleged conspirators in a broad daylight killing of a city based financier on Wednesday.

Arumugham, 36, who is a small time financier in Chennai was riding pillion with his staff Ramesh, when a four member gang waylaid them in two motorbikes and assaulted them. Ramesh managed to ride away and Arumugham tried to run from the place when the four men chased and hacked him to death in broad day light. The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon at the busy Aminjikarai area of Chennai.

Arumugham, according to police, had some cases against him and used to pester people who were not properly paying him interest money. He had also misbehaved with some women in the past and police is probing whether these were the issues behind his murder.

The City police have formed four crime squads and are probing into the movement of history sheeters and quotation gangs in the area and surrounding areas to throw light on the case.

Sources in the state police team probing the incident are looking after the CCTV visuals in the surrounding areas and have short listed a few people with known criminal antecedents.

The Greater Chennai police is also probing whether these four were employed by some one else to execute the crime or whether they had done this on their own.

A high level meeting was held at the insistence of the City police commissioner and has rounded up a few people and is questioning those close to the financier and the police is in detail studying his financial dealings. Police are also suspecting a few employees of his firm as well as a few others who had left the firm after falling out with Arumagham.

A senior officer with Chennai police while speaking to BPNS said, “ We are zeroing in on the culprits and will inform you as soon as we nab them.”
