Madurai/DinduglTuesday’s murder of a ration shop temporary worker V. Muniyasamy of Kamarajapuram has turned out to be a murder due to mistaken identity.
The police said that Kannan, who had seen Pandi moving near the ration shop, alerted the assailants by identifying Pandi as the one wearing a white shirt near the ration shop on Tuesday morning.
Pandi, who has a small poultry near the ration shop, used to go there every day to feed the fowls.
The police said that the ration shop was functioning in the building belonging to Pandi, an advocate.
The police said that the armed gang had hacked to death Muniyasamy, a functionary of Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam, instead of their target, M.S.
