It was learnt that the police were initially working on the theory that some armed men had invaded the neighbourhood and slit the throat of the deceased with a knife but some youths, who rushed to the area after the cries of Bala and his wife, strongly suspected her and had tried to lynch her before she was rescued by the police.

The 30-year-old Bala, himself a butcher, got married to teenager against her wishes, and was said to have been killed while relaxing in his home shortly after he returned from his business.
