The incident occurred yesterday, June 25, in the middle of a public highway. The victim’s family believe the motive for the vicious attack was a robbery: “He had collected the pension. He has gone to take the money from him, everything has been orchestrated by someone,” they said.
The National Police are investigating the case, in which a video of the attack went viral on social media, to clarify what led to the attack.
