Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: A 13-year-old girl committed suicide in her house in Kasturbanagar following alleged harassment by her classmate. The police said the girl returned from the school in the afternoon and hanged herself after writing a note to her parents.

Bomb hoax

A hoax call made from a public telephone booth triggered a bomb scare at the Bengaluru International Airport on Tuesday. The caller rang the city police control room around 12.40 p.m. saying an explosive had been planted on the premises of the airport. The control room alerted police officials and the CISF. Security was tightened at the airport. The dog squad and bomb disposal squads came up with nothing.

Arrested

The 22-year-old son of a police officer and a friend were arrested for allegedly assaulting a car driver in Kumaraswamy Layout on Tuesday night.

An inebriated Rahul, MBA student, and five friends asked Srinivas, the car driver, to drop them to Koramangala.

When he refused, they allegedly beat up Srinivas, who fled.

Even as he was running, Srinivas called the police, who arrested Rahul and his friend Rishi.
