A man was murdered on a busy road near the court in Prodduturu town of Kadapa district on Thursday morning.
People watched in utter shock as the ghastly incident took place in broad daylight, but none attempted to intervene. In a brazen act, the entire action was shot on a video and later shared by the assailants on their WhatsApp groups.
The assailants first stabbed the man, identified as Maruthi Prasad Reddy, and later hacked him to death after he collapsed in the middle of the road. The deceased is reported to have had an affair with a woman in the family of the persons who killed him. Reddy had also reportedly threatened to kill the accused.
Reddy was attending a court case in the morning when he was attacked by the accused, who were waiting for an opportunity after being fully prepared.
