A real estate agent was chased and hacked to death in the narrow bylanes of Chamarajpet IV Main on Monday evening. Minutes later, an alert beat constable gave two of the four assailants a chase and apprehended them.

Manjunath, a constable attached to the Chamarajpet Police Station, was on his Cheetah patrol vehicle when he heard a commotion near the Ganesha temple. On rushing to the spot, he saw four men emerging out of a narrow bylane with lethal weapons in hand.

Alerting the Hoysala vehicle, which was a few yards away with assistant sub-inspector Nagaraj and driver Raghu, Manjunath joined in as it sped to the spot.
Noticing the police, a member of the assailant gang, carrying a bloodied lethal weapon in his hand, threw it into the drain and started fleeing with his three associates. The police who gave them a chase, saw two of them escape, while two others boarded a speeding BMTC bus.


However, the police blocked the bus and apprehended one of them, even as the other managed to flee. However, Manjunath chased the man for about half-a-kilometre and apprehended him. The two were identified as Shivaraju, a resident of Bapuji Nagar and Ravi, a resident of Byatarayanapura, both in their late 20s.

The gang killed Manjunath alias Elaneeru Manja, 30, a real estate agent when he was on his way to a gym in Chamaraj­pet. A resident of Vitthal Nagar, he was earlier selling tender coconuts near TR Mill. The gang waylaid Manjunath near the Ganesha temple at T R Mill Circle and attacked him with pepper spray. However, Manjunath escaped and entered a house in a narrow bylane. Before, he could shut the door, the assailants barged in and hacked him to death.

Police interrogation revealed that Manjunath had lent a huge sum of money to Boregowda, also a real-estate dealer, a resident of Kamakshipalya. Boregowda was miffed when Manjunath used strong-arm tactics to get back the money. Following a bitter tiff over the issue, Boregowda decided to eliminate Manjunath with the help of the three other assailants.

The two arrested told police that Boregowda had led the attack. Chamarajpet Police have registered a case and are investigating.
