A 29-year-old youth was allegedly murdered by his neighbour for posting obscene videos and morphed pictures of his wife on Facebook as she refused to entertain him sexually. He also added contact details of the woman on the posts which led to her getting obscene calls, reported by Deccan Chronicle.
Gavaskar, the deceased blackmailer, was living with his grandmother in Royapuram since he was 10 years-old after his mother died and his father remarried and settled in Puducherry. Anbu, the accused, murdered Gavaskar by strangling him on May 25, according to the police. He had allegedly asked for sexual favours from Anbuâ€™s wife by threatening to post her obscene videos on Facebook.
The first attempt to murder him was carried out by making Gavaskar to drink poison on Marina but he survived the attempt.
On May 25, Anbu along with three others went to Puducherry and managed to bring him to Chennai. On the way, they strangulated him and hanged his body from a tree in an isolated area near Mahabalipuram. The murder came to light only after Gavaskarâ€™s relative filed a complaint with the Kirumampakkam police station Puducherry and the police started investigating the case.
Police found calls exchanged between Anbu and Gavaskar and took Anbu into custody where he confessed to the crime. Police has arrested Anbu and his associate Karthik. They are in search of Anbuâ€™s wife and a relative.
