The incident took place on Tuesday, killing the student
A 20-year-old man who shot dead a 19-year-old student at point-blank range in Vengadamangalam village near Tambaram in Kancheepuram district on Tuesday, surrendered before the Chengalpattu court on Wednesday.
The victim Mukesh, who was a polytechnic student in Vandalur, had visited the house of his friend Vijay, who was working as a delivery boy for a food delivery service company. It is suspected that the two quarrelled while watching a video on a mobile phone, and Vijay shot Mukesh in the head with a pistol. Mukesh died on the way to the hospital.
The Thalambur police have registered a case and are investigating. “The suspect will now be remanded to judicial custody and we have to take him into our custody for investigation,” a police officer said.
The officer added that they found a bullet of a smaller calibre than the 9 mm bullet that the police use. “We have sent it for forensic analysis,” the officer said.
