The victim has been identified as 42-year-old Ravi alias Matthiravi. Despite immediate efforts to transport him to a nearby hospital, he succumbed to his injuries en route.

On Wednesday, while returning home after attending a birthday celebration of a fellow Congress party worker named Krishnamurthy, Ravi was reportedly ambushed by the gang of assailants on two-wheelers, according to Deccan Herald. The assailants, armed with machetes, pursued him as he attempted to flee the scene, police told DH.
