Chennai, Aug 4 (IANS) Three more bodies were recovered here Monday sparking fears of a serial killer on the loose. The bodies of a Nepali youth K. Raju and an unidentified man were found in the city’s southern outskirts while one person identified as Murugan was found murdered in neighbouring Tiruvallur.

“The Nepali youth was spotted drinking liquor in the night and found dead in the morning,” A. Allauddin, an eyewitness told IANS.

“We found the body of this man with his head bashed and partially burnt,” another eyewitness R. Jeevarathinam told IANS over phone.

The police sources added that the three bodies have been sent for post mortem to check whether the modus operandi was similar to 12 men found dead in the southwest suburbs here under similar circumstances last month.

Though police commissioner R. Sekar had dismissed the psychopath theory earlier, he Monday said he was willing to look at the case from “all angles”.
