A 30-year-old person was hacked to death by a group visible to everyone at the Arakkonam New Bus Stand on Wednesday.
Police said the identity of the gangsters had not been set up yet and the intention behind the homicide was not known.
The person in question, V Gokul, implicated himself; he had gone to a TASMAC outlet close to the transport station around early afternoon. A group of men, who were at that point present at the shop, unexpectedly began pursuing Gokul, the police said.
After a short pursuit, the group got Gokul and hacked him to death with sharp articles in full general visibility out and about as spectators moved away in panic, the group killed him and escaped the spot, leaving him dead in a pool of blood.
Arakkonam Town Police raced to the spot and recovered the body, which was sent for postmortem assessment to the Government Vellore Medical College Hospital.

When Tamilnadu is moving towards socio equality, upliftment of the oppressed, inclusive growth and social harmony, one big factor is pulling TN backwards. That is PMK.#BanPMK
