History-sheeter arrested for attacking air hostess


The city police arrested a history-sheeter Ajay Kumar alias Jackie, who had cut off an air hostess’ ears and slashed her cheeks for rejecting his proposal. He was absconding after the incident.

The Kodigehalli and Yeshwantpur police in a joint operation nabbed him near Muthyalanagar around 5 am on Friday.

For a while, the victim was friends with Kumar, a history-sheeter. However, she parted ways with him.

On May 12, she was returning from the Kempegowda International Airport in a cab. At about 4.30 am, when the cab reached the traffic junction near Hebbal, Kumar stopped it and barged inside the cab.

He injured her ears and cheeks hoping that she would lose her job and a marriage proposal, the police said.

The police said last month, Kumar stopped the cab in which the victim was travelling and snatched her gold chain and bangles. She had filed a complaint with the Yeshwantpur police. He threatened her to withdraw the complaint against him.

The victim later filed a complaint at the Kodigehalli police station. In a joint operation, the police arrested him near Muthyalanagar.

He was involved in a murder case in Channarayapattana and also a couple of attempt-to- murder and dacoity cases. Kumar told police that he knew the victim for a couple of years, and both were in love. Recently she started avoiding him, and so he attacked her.
