A retired Assistant Sub Inspector was allegedly beaten to death by a rowdy-sheeter in the Thotavari Palem village in Andhra Pradesh's Prakasam district on Sunday, the Epurupalem police said.
"The retired Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) S Nageswara Rao (62) was a resident of Thotavari Palem village in the Prakasam district. A rowdy-sheeter named Surendra created a ruckus in front of the house of the retired police officer and subsequently entered into a heated argument. The fight escalated and Surendra used a stick to beat the former ASI to death. Rao died on the spot and Surendra fled the scene," the police said.
A case has been registered under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code. A search for the accused is underway, police said.
