A 41-year-old railway porter was bludgeoned to death by a co-worker at Central railway station on Wednesday.
In the early hours of Wednesday, the Government Railway Police received information that a person was lying unconscious in one of the waiting halls. Since the man did not respond when they attempted to wake him, they rushed him to a clinic inside the station and later to the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital, where the doctors said he was bludgeoned to death with a heavy object.
After interrogating other porters, the police identified him as Poongavanam. On scrutinising CCTV camera footage, the police established that he was murdered by a co-worker, identified as Azhuku Kumar, as a result of a rivalry between them. The accused attacked Poongavanam with a stone while he was sleeping in the waiting room and then fled, the police said.
Police have launched a search for Azhuku Kumar.
