According to the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) of Khammam district, a four-person vehicle with four passengers approached the entrance to Teldarupally and struck the man, killing him there and then fleeing.
"We have got information that four people have committed it (the murder) and we have formed four teams to find their location. The body is shifted to the hospital for postmortem," the ACP was quoted by news agency ANI as saying on Monday.
