Police said the boys had not informed their parents about their trip to the hills. On seeing Ranjith drown, his panic-stricken friends fled the scene. When Ranjith did not return home, his worried parents called up his friends who informed them he had not attended the day’s classes. Later, the boy’s uncle received a call from an unidentified person that Ranjith had drowned in the tank.

Doctor robbed

Man held for cheating

The Mahalakshmi Layout Police arrested a man on the charges of cheating. The suspect has been identified as Amarnath Singh (40), a resident of Mysore.
