Intervention costs man his life

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, MAY 16. Two cases of murder were reported from the city on Sunday in Rajagopalnagar and Kamakshipalya police station limits. One of the killings was connected to the recent elections.

The police said there was a clash between Chandrashekhar and Darshan, children of Krishanappa, a BESCOM employee, and C. Narayan, who contested the recent Assembly elections from Uttarahalli on the Janata Party ticket, and his friend, Nagaraja. It is said that the brothers had campaigned for Narayan, who owed them money. The clash occurred as Narayan avoided paying the money.

The police said when Krishnappa intervened, he reportedly received blows and collapsed. He was taken to K.C. General Hospital, where he died.

His daughter alleged in a complaint that Narayan and Nagaraj had assaulted Krishnappa. The police have taken up a case against them.

Meanwhile, Nagaraj complained to the police that the brothers had assaulted him with weapons and that he suffered injuries.

A case of attempt to murder has been registered against the brothers.

An unidentified person was murdered allegedly by a carpenter, identified as Gunashekarachari, in Hoysalanagar in the Kamakshipalya police station limits.

The police said the victim had approached Gunashekarachari, who is also employed as a watchman for work. He had been staying with Gunashekarachari.

The latter had reportedly given him Rs. 180 as loan. As the man failed to return the money, Gunashekarachari allegedly assaulted him with a club on Saturday.

He was found dead in the morning, the police said. What has intrigued the police is that Gunashekarachari, who has been arrested, was not able to give the name of the victim.

Case against Tanveer

The K.G. Halli police have registered one more case against Tanveer who was arrested by the police recently.

The police said Tanveer and his group had allegedly threatened Mohammed Abjal, a real-estate agent from Thanisandra, with dire consequences. They had asked him not to register a particular land in his name though he had paid the money to its previous owner. The group had reportedly told him that it would purchase the property.

The latest case is the seventh to be registered against Tanveer and his group after he and his associates were arrested at Palace Grounds last week.

Man arrested

The Indiranagar police foiled an attempt to take away a private bus hired by the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) on Saturday.

The police said a police constable, Venkatachala, found the bus being driven improperly by the driver.

He grew suspicious and after a chase stopped it. Enquiries revealed that the driver, Srinivas (34) of Kadirayyanapalya, was trying to take away the bus, which was estimated to cost Rs. 8 lakh.

It belonged to the Indiranagar depot of the BMTC. The police recovered the bus and arrested Srinvas.

Three killed

Three persons were killed in road accidents in the city on Saturday.

The police said Jafarulla Khan (17) died when he was hit by a BMTC bus at a bus stop in R.T. Nagar at 6.30 p.m.

The driver of the bus has been arrested and the vehicle seized.

A pedestrian, Thimmarayappa (28) of B. Narayanapura, was killed when a tanker hit him at Mahadevapura at 2.30 p.m.

He died at Manipal Hospital. The K.R. Puram traffic police have arrested the driver and seized the vehicle.

Narayan (25) of Aralimarapalya in Tavarekere was killed when the light commercial vehicle by which he was travelling, hit a tractor near Kengeri Checkpot.

Another person in the vehicle, Lakshminarasimhaiah, who was injured, has been admitted to NIMHANS, the police said.
