Krishna Nayaka son of Rama Nayaka, Honnali in Davangere district is the accused. Initially, he offered a piece of genuine gold to Uday, son of Corporator Mahadevamma.

It was just an act of winning his confidence. He returned again to give another set of gold piece offering it at mere Rs 1,000 per gram. Uday who grew suspicious lodged a complaint at N R police, eventually leading to his arrest.
