Three miscreants killed the BJP minority wing leader in Tamil Nadu’s Chennai on Tuesday, May 24. Balachandar (30) was murdered in Chintadripet by an unknown gang.
Before Balakrishnan, Balachandar’s PSO, could return, the gang jumped into two four-wheelers and fled the scene.
The killing of yet another BJP functionary has generated serious concerns about the city’s law and order situation.
Edappadi K. Palaniswami, the head of the opposition, also criticised the law and order situation, alleging that Chennai had become the “murder city,” with 18 killings in the last 20 days.
