The district secretary of loadmen welfare association affiliated to the CITU, Anbazhagan (46), was reportedly murdered by a member Manivannan allegedly due to a financial dispute at Gandhi Market on Thursday night. According to a preliminary police inquiry, Manivannan hit Anbazhagan's head with an iron rod in a fit of rage after a quarrel over the deposit money that Manivannan was stated to have paid several months ago to Anbazhagan for enrolling himself as a member. Since Manivannan was still not assigned with work, he had attacked Anbazhagan demanding return of the deposit money. A severely bleeding Manivannan was rushed to a private hospital where he succumbed to injuries soon after. Gandhi Market police have secured Manivannan.
