BENGALURU - KARNATAKA - 22/06/2018 :  The six-coach Namma metro train entering Trinity metro station in the Purple Line of the Namma Metro, on M G road, during its inaugural trip on Friday evening from Baiyappanahalli towards Kempegowda station, Majestic, by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL), in Bengaluru on June 22, 2018. Full-fledged commercial operations of six-coach Namma metro from Saturday. On Saturday, the six-coach train is expected to make a full first trip from Baiyappanahalli to Mysuru Road and back. From its second trip from Baiyappanahalli, the train would stop at the Vijayanagar station and turn back, in time to cater to the large number of government employees travelling towards the Vidhana Soudha and Cubbon Park stations, which means it will be a short-loop train. The train would make at least three round trips each in the morning and evening peak hours. An entire coach reserved for women will become a reality with the debut of the six-coach train, men will not be allowed to enter or use the first coach, and will be applicable only on the six-coach train.

Two armed men attacked a rival gangster, and then turned on pedestrians and motorists at Yelachenahalli metro station junction on Kanakapura Road on Wednesday evening. They injured their rival, smashed the windows of at least four vehicles and attacked a motorist. The Subramanyapura police arrested the accused, Harshith Gowda and his associate Sharan R., on Thursday.

Police said Harshith and Sharan, both aged 20, were riding a motorcycle when they saw a rival at the busy junction. They got off the bike and chased him armed with choppers. A motorist, identified as Srikanth, took out his mobile phone to record the incident. On being spotted by the duo, he was attacked by them, said a police officer. While trying to escape them, Srikanth fell from his motorcycle and sustained injuries.

As other motorists started recording them on their phones, Harshith and Sharan got even more enraged. “The duo turned violent as bystanders began to take photos. They started smashing cars on the road,” the officer said.

A probationary police officer, who was passing by, tried to catch them, but they escaped on their motorcycle. While fleeing, a goods van driver rebuked them for taking a one-way road. The duo smashed the window of the van.

A couple, who witnessed the incident, recorded the incident on their phone, and forwarded the footage to the police.

Police identified Harshith from the video clips. On Thursday, the team tracked him down to a farmhouse on the outskirts of the city where he was hiding with Sharan.
