On Tuesday night, Sugan alias Surendran (20) and Vicky alias Vignesh (23) were hacked to death by a gang close to the Manimangalam police station. The group fled after the attack. On information, the police reached the spot and rushed the duo to Chromepet Government Hospital where they died.

The gang came out on bail last month. The police said the four accused were friends of Devendran. They murdered Surendran and Vignesh in retaliation for their role in the murder of Devendran in March. Further investigation is on.
