One held for stabbing petrol bunk workers


A person who stabbed two petrol bunk workers and escaped from the police was arrested in the hospital where he sought treatment for a feigned injury in Bidar in the wee hours of Thursday.

Surendra Kote (28) of Halladkeri stabbed Anil Bakchodi (22) and Ramshetty Aliambar (26) at the Beldale petrol bunk on Mannalli road when they asked him for money for the petrol he had bought.
