Complaint about spicy manchurian costs customer's life

Police said Mohan (38), a water supplier, had taken a parcel of gobi manchurian from the restaurant. He later returned and complained to owner Veeresh that the food was too spicy. An argument ensued, and Mohan, who was reportedly drunk, roughed up Veeresh and held him by the collar.

At this point, Naveen, who was making manchurian at the adjoining counter, hit Mohan with a ladle, injuring him seriously. A profusely bleeding Mohan collapsed and was rushed to St John’s Hospital where doctors declared his condition to be extremely serious.
Police have detained Naveen and two others in this connection.

Victim’s body exhumed

The suicide death of Supritha, a class VII student of St Anthony’s School at Ramamurthynagar two days ago, took a new turn on Wednesday, with the police exhuming her body and conducting a post mortem.

“Police insisted that the girl’s parents and relatives lodge a complaint. Senior officers decided to take steps to exhume the body and conduct a post mortem once the relatives lodged a complaint on Tuesday night,” said police inspector V K Vasudev.

The body was exhumed with permission from east taluk special tahsildar Balappa. The post mortem was conducted at Ambedkar Hospital and the body was handed over to the parents for reburial.

“We are trying to ascertain what drove the victim to take the extreme step. Preliminary investigation revealed there was no harassment by the school staff,” the inspector added. Supritha, a resident of Vivekananda Road in Ramamurthynagar, returned home weeping on Monday afternoon. She refused to speak to her grandmother, rushed into a room and hanged herself from a ceiling fan, police said.

The incident came to light when her father Ramesh, a cab driver, returned home and opened the door at 8 pm.

It was claimed that Supritha had ended her life because of harassment by school staff. Her parents decided not to lodge a complaint as they were convinced it was a case of suicide. The parents’ decision to bury the body in a hurry had led to several questions, police said.

Man arrested

Gurunath later lodged a complaint with the police saying some unidentified man had shot at him to kill him. Based on the list of persons possessing air guns, police took up an investigation and zeroed in on Syed.
