VISAKHAPATNAM: Rowdy-sheeter P Vijay Kumar who was attacked by his rivals late Sunday night has succumbed to death in the small hours of Tuesday while undergoing treatment at KGH. Vijay Kumar, among the  13 accused in the murder case of another rowdy-sheeter T Anil Kumar in May 2015, has sustained grievous injuries when beaten up by a group of miscreants near Leela Mahal theatre on Sunday night.

According to sources, Vijay Kumar was shifted to the hospital and was being treated in the ICU. Vijay Kumar was accused number 9 in  the Anil Kumar’s murder case. Anil Kumar was murdered by his rival gang headed by Narasimha Murthy alias Latchu and Podugu Kiran in May last year.

After the murder, attacks continued for several months. In March this year, Narasimha Murthy was murdered by Kasim, a member of the T Anil Kumar gang. In July, Podugu Kiran also committed suicide in the Central Jail here. The cops have been suspecting the involvement of Kasim in Vijay Kumar’s murder now. Sources said Kasim who was arrested after Narasimha Murthy’s murder is out on bail. Police are investigating from all angles.
