Caught on camera: Two cops are seriously injured after crashing into a car in Jaipur, Rajasthan
The incident happened around 1.30pm when Arumugham was riding a passenger on a bicycle with his employee Ramesh. The four men on two two-wheelers intercepted the duo near Pulla Avenue. Arumugham started running down the main road but the gang members parked their vehicles and gave chase. The assailants caught him at a median, reported YOU.
One of the viral videos showed the four-member gang then attacking Arumugham with edged weapons repeatedly hacking at him, unconcerned that they were filmed by passing motorists and others.
Arumugham died on the spot while Ramesh managed to flee for his life. The entire murder happened in public view, but no one came forward to help Arumugham.
Another video, shot from a moving car which also went viral, showed Arumugham bleeding profusely from his hands and head.
Following the deadly attack, some people alerted the control room and a team from Aminjikarai Police rushed to the scene and sent the body for an autopsy at Government Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital, YOU reported.

Police opened an investigation after registering a case based on footage from a few CCTV cameras at the scene. The registration numbers of the killers’ bicycles, which were recorded in the video, are also being examined by police.
The police investigation revealed that Arumugham allegedly attacked borrowers for non-payment of dues and often even threatened them. Although the motive for the murder is yet to be determined, police suspect that the murder may have been the result of Arumugham’s enmity with some defaulting lenders.
