A senior citizen hailing from Tamil Nadu was murdered for supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi by a supporter of the DMK-Congress alliance on Saturday.
Govindarajan, 75, was brutally attacked by Gopinath, an ardent supporter of Rahul Gandhi and MK Stalin, for campaigning for Modi for the Lok Sabha elections. The victim was a Modi-Jayalalithaa fan.
A report in India Today said Gopinath, the accused, got into an argument with the elderly man while the latter was seeking votes for the AIADMK-BJP alliance at Orthanadu late on Saturday. The police have arrested Gopinath.
Upset with his campaigning, Gopinath attacked Govindarajan. The senior citizen collapsed and died hours later.
