After taking charge as the Police Commissioner of Chennai, IPS officer A Arun said on Monday that maintaining law and order and controlling rowdies would be his prominent priorities.

He also mentioned that he would also check the killing of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief, Armstrong.

“I am not new to Chennai. Issues in Chennai like law and order, and controlling rowdies will be my first priority. I will check the Armstrong issue (Tamil Nadu BSP state president K Armstrong). I have taken the charge just now,” Arun said.

A Arun replaced Sandeep Rai Rathore as the new Police Commissioner of Chennai.

K Armstrong, Tamil Nadu BSP Chief, was hacked to death on Friday evening by a group of unidentified men near his residence in Perambur, Chennai.

Following the brutal killing of K Armstrong, the Chennai police suspect the involvement of associates of gangster Arcot Suresh, who was murdered in August last year.

In an interview with ANI on Sunday, Asra Garg, Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), North Chennai, said, “After sustained interrogation, due analysis, and diligence regarding the facts and circumstances of each suspect, we have arrested eight people. We have seized seven blood-stained weapons, one Zomato t-shirt, a Zomato bag, and three bikes that were used in the commission of the offence.”

Highlighting the suspected motive behind the killing, ACP Garg mentioned that the associates of gangster Arcot Suresh, who was assassinated last year, believed it was “conspired” by Armstrong.

“In continuation of this, the special teams formed by the Chennai police have secured three more suspects. The preliminary investigation so far indicates that the motive prima facie appears to be based on different types of analysis. In August 2023, Arcot Suresh was murdered by a gang; his family and associates believe it was done under the direction or in conspiracy with Armstrong, who was murdered on Friday,” he stated.

The Chennai police have formed special teams to comprehensively probe the case.

Earlier on Saturday, the BSP supremo, Mayawati, called for immediate action from the Tamil Nadu government.

“The brutal murder of a hardworking and dedicated leader of the BSP in Tamil Nadu and the state party unit president K. Armstrong outside his Chennai residence yesterday evening has sent shockwaves across society. The government should immediately take strict and necessary action to prevent such incidents in the future,” she said in a post on ‘X’. (ANI)
