Hyderabad: Escorting his pregnant wife from a hospital, a 25-year old man was Friday hacked to death by a lone assailant, footage of which was captured on CCTV at the institution.

The assailant used a butcher's knife to attack the victim on the neck, police said. A senior police official said they were also probing whether the girl's family was involved in the killing as the man who belonged to a Scheduled Caste.

The deceased was an employee of a private firm, and had got married six months back. "The two were coming from a hospital when the husband was attacked. It was recorded in the CCTV at the hospital. We are verifying the footage," Miryalaguda sub-inspector Nagaraju said.
