The principal, LRD Suresh (53) of Infant Jesus College of Engineering and Technology sustained multiple cut injuries and was rushed to a government hospital but was pronounced dead.
The three students, who had managed to escape from the campus, were climbing a hillock nearby when police, with the help of other students, managed to nab them.
The three were identified as P Pichaikannan (21), a fourth year Aeronautical Engineering student from Nazareth, G Dannis (22), studying fourth year B Tech and M Prabakaran (21) from Nagapattinam studying third year BE Civil Engineering.
Police said Suresh had entered the campus at Kamaraj Nagar in Keela Vallanadu around 8.30am and was walking towards his office room, when the three students, who were waiting for him, surrounded him and attacked him with sickles. Suresh sustained multiple injuries and collapsed in a pool of blood. Students and faculty of the college took him to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Later, the body was shifted to the government hospital for postmortem examination. The murder spread shock and panic across the college campus and students and faculty gathered in large numbers at the government hospital in Tirunelveli where the principal’s body was kept.
Police said that one of the students was suspended two days back by the principal and that could be the motive for the murder. “Pichaikannan was suspended two days back. We suspect that the suspension and humiliation was the motive for the murder. Dannis and Prabakaran were friends of Pichaikannan and so they joined him in the attack,” a police officer investigating the case said.
