The police are searching for the DMK member Ponraj, who fled after killing a youth just for refusing to buy a cigarette. The incident happened in Tiruvallur, Chennai.
Sankar is a resident of Periyakuppam in Tiruvallur district next to Chennai. His son name is Samuel. Two days ago, Samuel was walking with his friends and encountered DMK leader Ponraj, who was drinking in a car. He asked Samuel to go buy cigarettes for him and Samuel refused. Angered by this, Ponraj took the knife he had in his car and stabbed Samuel in the chest and fled the scene.
Samuel collapsed on the spot and began to lose blood. Friends who accompanied him took Samuel to the state hospital but were shocked when state doctors said that he was already dead. Police have registered a murder case against DMK member Ponraj.
