In a bizarre incident in Kollam district, two men died several days after they clashed over one of them urinating in a public place.
Two weeks ago, a pick up van driver Aji Damodar relieved himself near a shop owned by Chandrababu (62) in Shooranadu of Kollam district.
Chandrababu objected to Aji urinating outside his shop, after which the man hit Chandrababu with a bunch of keys and attacked him in other ways. Chandrababu sustained several injuries and was hospitalised. Aji was nowhere to be found.
Two days ago Chandrababu succumbed to his injuries and police registered a murder case against Aji. Hospital authorities said internal injuries sustained in the attack led to Chandrababuâ€™s death.
On Saturday when police went to arrest the accused, he was found dead, hanging from the ceiling fan. Aji had also cut his veins.
