COIMBATORE: Two people have been arrested for assaulting a 48-year-old man for turning down one of their friends’ request to stay in his house at Vilankurichi on Wednesday night. The main accused in the case is on the run and the Kovilpalayam police have launched a manhunt for him.
An investigation officer said Muneesh, a native of Dindigul, had befriended R Rajasekar at a Tasmac shop and the latter used to allow him to stay in his house at Vilankurichi in exchange for liquor and food.
“On Wednesday, Muneesh requested Rajasekar to allow him to stay in his house for a night. When Rajasekar didn’t entertain his demand, Muneesh entered into a heated argument and left the place. He met Rajasekar on Friday along with his friends B Anilkumar and M Rajamani, of Vilankurichi, and attacked him with a knife,” the officer said.
The trio, the officer said, had also damaged the window glasses of the house. “Rajamani was rushed to the Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital with cut injuries to his head and face. Based on his complaint, we registered a case and arrested Anilkumar and Rajamani on Friday itself. Muneesh has gone into hiding,” the officer said.
