A man was brutally murdered allegedly by a group of eight persons for not ceding to their demand of Rs 10 lakh in Gujarat’s Bhavnagar city, police said on Friday.

The murder, which took place at about 11:30 PM on Thursday, was captured by the CCTV cameras at a nearby residential apartment, in which the victim is seen being chased and beaten to death, they said.

According to a complaint lodged by Irfan Makwana, the assailants had demanded an extortion sum of Rs 10 lakh from his brother Rafiq Makwana or else to transfer his vegetable shop to their names.

          Local gangs are being given protection by local politicians and now things have got out of hand. This dispute has been simmering for a very long time, someone was protecting the culprits from the police and law...now name those protectors.
