In a bizarre, barbaric incident, a TRS leader was killed in an attack on him, allegedly by a group of people at Vikarabad district on Tuesday. Following this, some of his relatives assaulted two Congress workers blaming them for the death, police said.
Narayana R (65) was attacked using sticks and stones by a group while he was going on his two-wheeler near an agricultural field in Sultanpur village in the morning resulting in his death.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Narayana's driver Mallaiah had allegedly spoken ill of a woman in the village and subsequently her family members locked Mallaiah up in his house Monday and 'attacked and killed Narayana this morning, they said.
A case of murder and rioting under relevant IPC sections was registered based on a complaint filed by the deceased's son and some suspects have been picked up for questioning.
The motive behind the murder seems to be Mallaiah talking ill about the woman. However, a political angle was also being looked into, a high ranking police official said.
