CHITTOOR: Tension prevailed at Kalimidoddi village of Santhipuram
mandal following the murder of a Dalit D Subramanyam (45) on Tuesday.
A dispute over an assigned land led to the murder of Subramanyam, the
police said.

In retaliation, Dalits attacked the houses of four upper caste persons
accused in the murder case and torched three houses. They also damaged
three tractors and a car belonging to the accused in the village.

A police picket was also posted in the villages as a precautionary measure.

According to the police, 1.32 acres was assigned to Subramanyam by the
revenue department, which was challenged in the court by Abbu Gounder
and four others, claiming that the land belonged to them.

Abbu Gounder (52) along with Rajamanikam (58), Seenu(31) and Siva (25)
allegedly attacked Subramanyam with stones when he was waiting for the
revenue staff for conducting the survey of the disputed land.
Subramanyam died on the spot.
