Chennai: Former Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) mayor Uma Maheswari was murdered at her residence on Tuesday. Her husband Muruga Sankaran (65) and their domestic help were also hacked to death by unidentified assailants in Reddiyarpatti town in Tirunelveli district.

The incident came to light when the help’s mother came in search of her around 4:30pm on Tuesday. Tirunelveli Police Commissioner reached the spot and is looking into the case.

Maheswari (61) was the mayor of the Tirunelveli Corporation between 1996 and 2001. A property dispute was suspected to be a possible motive behind the triple murder, police said, adding they were investigating all angles as the safe in the house was found broken.
