Mystery shrouds youth's death

Santosh Kumars family members suspect that he was murdered

While the police claimed it is a case of suicide, the youth’s family members suspected that he was murdered. The police now await the post mortem report.

The police said, the youth was found writhing on the lawns of the apartment on Friday afternoon. He was soon rushed to the Victoria Hospital where he succumbed to injuries.

From the college identity card recovered from his pocket, the police identified him as Santosh Kumar (24), a resident of Tilak Nagar, a college dropout who had quit studies three years back.

On inspection of the spot where the incident had occurred, the police found that the windows of all the apartment were closed except a window of the sixth floor flat. The police suspected that the youth could have fallen from the sixth floor.

During investigation, it was learnt that the building premises was well secured with security guards manning round the clock.

There were 23 labourers working on the fourth floor of the building. But the police are still clueless as to how the youth had managed to enter the premises.

Kumar’s uncle alleged that he was murdered somewhere else and the body was thrown inside the premises to pass it of as a suicide.

Two robbed

In two separate incidents, a cab driver employed with a call centre and a motorcyclist were robbed of their valuables at Rajarajeshwarinagar and Mahadevapur on Thursday.

Cab driver Akram Pasha was returning after dropping the employees when four persons waylaid him near Seshadripuram petrol bunk. They threatened him at knife-point forcing him to sit in the back seat and drove the vehicle near Rajarajeshwarinagar where they allegedly robbed him of a cellphone, Rs 300 in cash, and fled with the vehicle. 

In another incident, two eunuchs waylaid a motorcyclist Manjunath on the Outer Ring Road in Mahadevapura and robbed him of Rs 7,000 in cash and a cellphone.

Burglar nabbed

The Mico Layout police have nabbed Balaraj (28) of Attur in Yelahanka and recovered gold ornaments worth Rs three lakh from him.

He confessed to have burgled three houses in Mico Layout and Tilak Nagar area.
Earlier he was arrested by the Tilak Nagar police but after coming out on bail, he went underground.

No clue on kidnap

Even after twenty four hours police are clueless about the Baldwin College student who was allegedly kidnapped when he was on way to the college on Thursday.

Eighteen-year-old Umrez Khan, a resident of HSR Layout, had left for his college in the morning.

The same day afternoon, his father Aziz Khan, a wholesale fruit seller of Huskur, received a call from an unidentified caller who said his son was in his custody and demanded Rs 25 lakh for his release.

“That was the last call Aziz Khan received on Thursday about the ransom. Since then there has been no call,” said the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Madivala Circle.

A team has been constituted to solve the crime, he added.
