TN - Engineering student killed by friends for closeness with girl

According to reports, a 19-year-old engineering student was murdered by his friends for his closeness with a mutual female friend. Three students have been detained by the police.


S Munthazir, a second-year student of a private college in Mayiladuthurai left his residence on January 4 to meet his relative. However, when she called him later, an unknown person answered claiming that her son was abducted and that she needed to pay Rs 5 lakh. When she tried calling back, the phone was switched off.


The next day, Munthazir was found dead with his throat slit. The abduction story was just to throw the light away from the real reason of murder. Reportedly, Munthazir was murdered by three students who were his friends.


Munthazir and 19-year-old Ijaz Ahmed liked the same girl from a nearby college. When Munthazir changed his Facebook profile picture of him with the girl, Ijaz got angered. Ijaz called Munthazir in the pretext of a surprise. He had asked him to close his eyes and slit his throat
