Trichy gang tries for bail

According to sources, the accused were making constant efforts since the moment they were zeroed in on by the CCB police in Shirdi in Maharashtra recently. Two advocates from Mysore had made a bid when the accused were brought to Mysore, but had to retreat as the latter were booked under sections 420 (cheating) and 380 (theft) of IPC.

In case of only cheating, their chances of walking out on bail was brighter, sources said.
Maharashtra police who had taken the gang to their state on August 20, sought extension of their custody and the court granted permission till September 7. Recently, a police team from another station in the same state arrived in the city seeking their custody. Police from Andhra Pradesh, Shimoga and Chitradurga are also seeking their custody.

CCB police investigating into the theft of Rs 23.5 lakh from Karnataka Bank, D Devaraja Urs road branch, here solved cases pertaining to afore mentioned police stations limits.

Two drown

Two youths from the city who had been to immerse Ganesha idol at Varuna canal near Rammanahalli on Monday night, have met with their watery grave.

The body of Manjunath was retrieved near Rayarahundi on Tuesday evening, while the search for another was still on when the last reports came in. South police have registered a case.

Wife, paramour held

Udayagiri police claim to have solved a murder case arresting two — including the victim’s wife.
