BENGALURU: A gang of unidentified men hacked a 25 year-old auto driver to death near the Metro Station at Mahalakshmi Layout in the early hours of Tuesday. The deceased is Andrew,  a resident of Srirampura. He had married one Anisha a few years ago. The couple have a two-year old son. A senior police officer said the incident took place around 3.30 am when he was sitting inside an auto.

“A gang of five men came in a vehicle and attacked Andrews with lethal weapons and fled the scene. One of his hand was separated from his body in the brutal attack. Passersby noticed him lying in a pool of blood alerted police,” he said.

“Anisha told police that her husband had not come home in three days. She came to know about his death when Andrew’s brother David was informed about the incident. Preliminary investigations revealed that he had involved in a scuffle with some auto drivers near Seshadipuram recently and it could be the reason for the assailants to attack him. No CCTV footage was found at the crime spot and efforts are on to nab the accused. We have also collected statements from an eye witness to gather details of the vehicle used by the gang”, the officer added.
