The victim was indentified as Viyaagarasa Vaseekaran, 30, a father two children, from Chanthiraseakarappi'l'laiyaar Road in Koppaay.

The victim's body also bore marks due to severe beating, and burn marks from cigarette butts.

Local residents who approached the house on hearing screams were allegedly beaten back by men identified as belonging to a paramilitary group, residents said.
