In Puduchery, 7 bike-borne assailants on Sunday night hurled country-made bombs at a BJP worker and hacked him to death. The incident happened when 45-year-old Senthil Kumar, a resident of Kanuvapettai and a relative of Puducherry home minister A Namassivayam, was standing near a bakery in a populated area. The CCTV footage of the incident showed a group of bike-borne men hurling locally made bombs at the victim who collapsed due to the impact and was later hacked to death.
