Babloo case: Hibare's driver arrested

BIDAR, MAY 8. Police arrested Manohar, driver of the main accused, Shatrugna Hibare, in the Babloo murder case, on Sunday night.

According to police sources, Manohar, who had been absconding since the beheading of Babloo (5) on April 1, was arrested at Hallikhed B village.

Police also reportedly seized the jeep, which is said to have been used for bringing the sorcerer from Akkalakot town in Maharashtra for committing the murder, at Humnabad town.

However, little headway has been made in identifying the sorcerer. ``We are still in the dark about his identity apart from the information that he was from Akkalakot town. When a police team went there, he had left the place,'' a senior police officer supervising the investigation said.
