Four held for murder

The suspects are Allabakash (23), Saleem Khan (21) and Riyaz Pasha (22), all from Mangammanapalya, and Samiullah (23) from S R Nagar.

The men are accused of killing Nyamatullah at J J Nagar on May 2. Police said both the victim and his killers were natives of Denkanikote in Tamil Nadu.

According to police, Nyamatullah was allegedly involved in 18 criminal cases, including murders, attempts to murder and assault on government officers in the Denkanikote police limits.

He was wanted by the police in an attempt-to-murder case involving the prime suspect Allabakash’s relative in 2010. Nyamatullah disappeared after the incident and Madivala police had been on the lookout for him ever since.

He frequently attacked the relatives of Allabakash at Denkanikote and allegedly planned to even murder him, police said. Allabakash decided to put an end to Nyamatullah’s rowdy ways and hatched a conspiracy to kill him.

On May 2, at around 5 pm, Allabakash and his associates attacked Nyamattullah with lethal weapons on 7th E Cross, Vinayaknagar, JJ Nagar, and fled the spot.

The Denkanikote police registered a murder case against Allabakash and Samiullah.
