A 38-year-old man, said to have been involved in several criminal cases, was killed on Sunday in Andhra Pradesh's Guntur town, said media reports.

According to CNN-News18, five assailants arrived in an SUV and hacked the victim, identified as Basavala Vasu, to death. The report added that the incident could be a case of revenge killing.

Arundelpet circle inspector Y Srinivasa Rao told The News Minute that Vasu's murder could have been carried out by rival gangs.
