Coimbatore: In a shocking incident, a man was beaten to death on a busy road in Tamil Nadu`s Coimbatore.

The incident, which was caught live by a CCTV camera installed at a traffic signal by the city police, occurred on Sunday.

The man had picked up a quarrel with a four-member gang at a local pub. Later, when the man left the pub the inebriated gang members followed him. They first hit him with a two-wheeler and then beat him to death using stones.

What’s shocking is that none of the commuters on the busy road came to the rescue of the man; they just stood as a mute spectator.

The police have arrested all four members of the gang responsible for the gruesome killing.

Also, the incident occurred very close to a police station.

The victim was identified as 29-year-old Santosh, a painter.
