In a horrific incident in Kerala last Saturday, a young man was beaten to death on the streets of state capital Thiruvananthapuram, and that too in broad daylight.
Mobile footage taken by a passerby shows 23-year-old Shabeer being chased by a group of men in Vakkom near Attingal and mercilessly beating him up with sticks and a bat.
Though a voice can be heard saying, "Poor man, leave him," the others disagree and go on attacking Shabeer.
Police inspector in Vakkom told The News Minute that previous rivarly was suspected behind the murder. Shabeer and his friend Unnikrishnan were intercepted by the rival gang as they were travelling on a bike. While one man can be seen holding Shabeer's leg, others can be seen battering him. Shabeer who was admitted to a hospital, later succumbed to his injuries.
The Thiruvananthapuram police has asked the media not to telecast the footage as it could create tension in the area. We are only attaching screenshots from the murder most foul.
No arrests have yet been made in the case.
