Devaraj (25) was a resident of Kamalanagar.   Around 11 am, Devaraj and his friends, Harikrishna and Mohan, were walking in the ground where a group of boys were playing cricket. Mohan got into an argument with the boys and in a fit of anger slapped one of them.

Devaraj and his friends were leaving the ground when the boys began chasing them. The auto driver and his friends began running towards Kirloskar Colony, when five of the boys --- Rajesh, Arun, Balu, Vijay Patil and Pawan managed to catch up with Devaraj. As four of them held him, Rajesh got hold of a sharp instrument and stabbed Devaraj on his chest.

Bleeding profusely, Devaraj collapsed as his assailants fled. With the help of passersby, his friend Mohan took him to nearby Panacea hospital, but the doctors declared him brought dead.

Police have detained Pawan, Rajesh, Arun, Balu and Vijay Patil of Basaveshwaranagar and are questioning them.
