Guard at bungalow frequented by Jaya found dead
A security guard posted at a bungalow, frequently visited by late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, at nearby Kodanad estate was on Monday found dead, while some documents were suspected to have been stolen from its premises.
The estate figures in the disproportionate assets case involving jailed AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala and Jayalalithaa, among others.
The incident came to light on Monday morning when workers at the tea estate noticed security guards Om Bahadur and Kishore Bahadur lying in a pool of blood with their hands and legs bound and informed the police. While 40-year-old Om was found dead, a seriously wounded Kishore was rushed to Kothagiri government hospital.
