VIJAYAWADA: Six bike-borne men hacked to death a rowdy-sheeter in broad daylight near Machavaram police station on Wednesday. The police said that three of the accused have been nabbed and are being interrogated. The deceased, Kaalidasu Subramanyam (42) alias Vemuri Subramanyam or Subbu, was once under the custody of the Vijayawada police for illegally possessing guns. On receiving information about Subbu’s murder, police rushed to the spot and shifted the body to Government General Hospital for post-mortem. Police told TNIE that Subbu received multiple wounds on his face and stomach.

According to Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP Law & Order -I) Gajaraj Bhupal, around 11 am, when Subbu was sitting near a tea stall at Machavaram Down Centre, six men in two bikes came to the stall and attacked him with knives and country-made weapons. He tried to save himself from their repeated attacks but failed to do so.

They stabbed him on the face and stomach before fleeing. Subbu was killed on the spot. “The bikes used during the crime have been seized and some clues have emerged from the spot.  While questioning Subbu’s family members, TDP leader Katragadda Srinivas’ name surfaced. The investigation is on,” said the DCP. He said no political rivalry is involved.

Police did not bring any sniffer dog to the crime spot, which is surprising 
With no CCTV cameras around, the  police could not trace the assailants 
However, the police collected one weapon from the spot of the 
crime and sent it for investigation
