ERODE: Tension gripped the town on Thursday as hair-dressers shut their shops and hoisted black flags demanding that those behind the murder of a woman who belonged to the barbers’ community be arrested.

Raghunathan had an affair with Sathyabama and she became pregnant. He allegedly married her secretly and later deserted her. When she went to Raghunathan’s house on May 11, his father Easwaran hacked her to death. The TN Hair Dressers Union issued a bandh call of salons to pressure the police to arrest the perpetrators.
