Retired CRPF constable shot dead

It was reported that unidentified miscreant had fired at Cheeranda Achappa Vitala (55), who was retired from the Central Reserve Police Force 15 years ago, near his house at around 6 pm and consequently Vitala died on the spot.

The miscreant, who was hiding near Vitala’s house, managed to run away from the spot after the incident.

It was Vitala’s wife Lata and sister Seethamma, who rushed outside their house on hearing the firing sound and traced the body lying in a pool of blood.

Vitala was engaged in cultivating his land for the past 15 years. Meanwhile, the reason for the incident is yet to be ascertained.

DySP Annappa Naik, sub inspectors Siddegowda and Mahesh visited the spot.
