Police recounted that the incident of road rage had taken place on Flowers Garden in Pazhavanthagal on the night of July 7.
“It all happened when Srinivasan, who in an inebriated condition was driving his vehicle in a zigzag manner picked up an argument with Ayyappan who was returning home after work from Velachery at around 8 pm. In a fit of rage, Ayyappan, removed his helmet and hit on Srinivasan’s head. Srinivasan collapsed on the road,” police said.
Srinivasan’s wife Vijaya  heard of her husband’s plight on the road and managed to take him home. Even as his head began swelling the next morning, Srinivasan remembered Ayyappan hitting him on the head with his helmet.
The doctors could not save Srinivasan from the complications caused by intensive head injury. Following his death, Pazhavanthagal police arrested the software professional for murder.
