CHIDAMBARAM: In a gruesome double murder, a gang beheaded two Dalit brothers at Annamalai Nagar near Chidambaram in the wee hours of Tuesday and then dumped the severed heads outside the Rajah Muthiah Medical College Hospital before fleeing. They also threw country-made bombs at the victims’ house and the hospital entrance. Two unexploded bombs were seized by the police. Sources said four persons surrendered before the police later in the afternoon.

The deceased duo was identified as Ambulance Kumar (34) and his younger brother Rajesh (32), residents of Kalungamedu area at Annamalai Nagar. The brothers were running an ambulance and auto business.

According to the police, a group of masked men arrived at Kumar’s house around 2.30 am on motorbikes and forced their way in. They hurled bombs and attacked Kumar’s relatives and friends who had come for his sister’s wedding a few days ago. The gang then attacked and killed Kumar and Rajesh.

They beheaded the duo and took their severed heads to the Rajah Muthiah Medical College Hospital and dumped them at the entrance. They also hurled bombs at shops located in front of the hospital before fleeing. A car and shop were damaged.

On information, Chidambaram DSP R Rajaram and two police inspectors rushed to the spot. They sent the bodies and the severed heads to the Chidambaram Government Hospital. The police also seized two unexploded bombs. Annamalai Nagar police registered a case.

The double murder is believed to be the fallout of Kumar’s enmity with Hari, brother of deceased rowdy Chandran. Kumar was also reportedly the intended victim of a bomb, which accidentally exploded while being assembled inside a house at Mariyappa Nagar in Annamalai Nagar on May 3.
