Kollam: A Tamil Nadu native was allegedly beaten to death by his friend at Neendakara, Kollam. The deceased has been identified as construction worker Mahalingam (54). The murder took place on Friday around 1 am.

The Chavara police have taken Biju, a native of Kottayam, into custody in connection with the incident.

Biju struck Mahalingam on the head with an iron rod while Mahalingam was sleeping inside a temple that was under construction in Neendakara. Both Biju and Mahalingam were employed as construction labourers in the area.
