CHENNAI: A road rage over vehicle-parking led to the murder of a 26-year-old youth  near Porur on Wednesday night.

Two persons, both siblings, were arrested in connection with the murder on Thursday.  The victim identified as Satishkumar, who was residing at Madanandapuram near Porur, was found dead with bleeding injuries to his head.

Preliminary inquiries revealed that he had previous enmity with one Maaveran alias Vijayachandran over parking his mini-van when he was residing at Karambakkam.

In 2013, Satishkumar was even arrested for attacking Vijayachandran with a knife and was later let out on bail.  Investigations revealed that Satish had approached Vijayachandran to compromise in order to get the complaint withdrawn. But, the latter had turned him away and had reportedly warned him of avenging the attack on him, a police official said.

He had made many futile attempts since then to take revenge, the official added. Meanwhile on Wednesday night, around 10 pm, Vijayachandran, along with his younger brother Ranjith, 20, followed Satishkumar on his way back home and hit him with iron rods on his head, leaving him to die. Locals found the man lying in a pool of blood in a deserted lane and informed police. The man was taken to a private hospital where he was declared dead on arrival, after which police shifted his body to GRH. A special team arrested the brothers on Thursday and remanded them in judicial custody.

Two Electrocuted

Meanwhile, two of a family were electrocuted on Thursday when they came into contact with a live wire on Thrusday that was snapped by heavy rains the previous evening in Thiruvallur district.

Police said that M Rajeswari (21) and her brother-in-law P Devendran (23) were the victims.
