Tamil Nadu BSP chief killed, 8 suspects detained – N.F Times

Tamil Nadu: At least eight suspects have been detained in connection with the murder of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) state president K Armstrong, news agency PTI reported on Saturday, citing the police.

K Armstrong was hacked to death by a six-member gang near his house in Chennai on Friday. The gang attacked Armstrong, a former councillor of Chennai Corporation, near his house in Perambur, and fled before inflicting grievous injuries on him. He died on the way to the hospital.

Asra Garg, additional commissioner (North), told reporters that the police have formed 10 teams to nab the accused.

“We have secured eight suspects so far. This is early an investigation, a preliminary investigation. So after some time, a clear and better picture will emerge with more facts and circumstances coming to light,” he said.

Garg also said the police suspected that there were some “two to three suspicious motives” behind Armstrong’s killing but added that the exact reason would come to light only after the interrogation of the suspects.
