Kasargod: A 34-year-old madrassa teacher was hacked to death by unidentified assailants near here in the wee hours Tuesday, police said.

Riaz was fatally attacked in his room attached to a mosque around 1.30 am. The mosque's 'imam' Aziz Wahabhi, who was staying in another room, rushed out hearing screams of Riaz.

However, he was forced to retreat as stones were thrown at the building, police said.

He then called for help through the mosque's public address system, following which the assailants fled away.

A profusely bleeding Riaz was rushed to a hospital but could not be saved, police said adding the body had been sent to his hometown Madikere in neighbouring Karnataka.
