A 63-year-old man was bludgeoned to death on Tuesday with heavy stones near Pal village near the city on Thursday early morning. The victim, Vallabh Rangani, was attacked at around 6am when he was out for the routine morning walk.
Police said that the attacker even called up Rangani's son Paresh and said that he had murdered his father. "I am Kasari speaking and I have killed your father," the caller, who spoke in Hindi, said and disconnected the call.
Some passersby informed the police control room on noticing the man lying in pool of blood near Agan Park plot. Police rushed to the spot where Rangani's family members identified him.
