CHENNAI: A 40-year-old ‘reformed’ history-sheeter was hacked to death inside his house in Ennore on Sunday night. Five suspects, including a juvenile have been arrested. The deceased, Arumugam from Nethaji Nagar, has a murder case and a few other charges pending against him, said the police. He changed his ways due to a kidney ailment and was staying with his mother, added the police.

“On Sunday, a few men reached Arumugam’s house and asked him to step out. Though Arumugam locked himself inside the house, the gang entered by breaking the asbestos roof and attacked him with an ice pick,” said a police officer. Arumugam died on the spot and the gang fled after a police patrol vehicle reached the house.
