Security guard foils murder bid in bank, shoots gang member

Sivaganga, Sep 18 (UNI) In an act of exemplary courage, an alert security guard shot one of the armed gang, which attempted to kill a murder-case accused inside a public sector bank here on Wednesday.
According to Police, Thangamani, accused in the recent murder of Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) party’s Union secretary U Saravanan of Avaarankadu in Sivaganga district, was waylaid by a four-member gang near the Marakadai bus stop.
The gang attacked him with sickles.
Thangamani, who sustained cut injuries in the attack, ran into the Canara Bank’s Manamadurai branch to defend himself from the gang.
However, the gang attempted to barge into the bank to hack Thangamani.
The security guard of the bank opened fire on one of the gang members. The bullet pierced into the knee of the hoodlum Tamilselvan (30).
The gang escaped from the bank in a vehicle.
Superintendent of Police R Rohit Nathan visited the bank and held inquiries with the security guard and bank employees.
Thangamani was admitted to the government hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, a police team arrested Tamilselvan, when he went to the government hospital to treat the bullet injury. He was immediately rushed to the Government Rajaji Hospital in Madurai for further treatment.
Investigations revealed that Thangamani was out on bail.
The slain AMMK functionary’s brother U Andiselvam had hired the gang to eliminate Thangamani to avenge the murder.
Police have registered a case and were searching the three members of the gang.
