A Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam member was hacked to death allegedly by supporters of an All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam functionary in full public view in Madurai on Thursday, police said.

M S Pandian, in his late 30s, was attacked by the group with sickles on the busy Keezhavali road in the morning.

He was rushed to a hospital where he died without responding to treatment, they said. He was nephew of former DMK zonal chairman V K Gurusamy and the attack by supporters of local AIADMK leader Rajapandian was due to previous enmity, police said adding it was not related to election.  -- PTI
