4 hack man to death, surrender

The accused Kutti, Nagaraj, Shetty and an unidentified person, took the victim John Bosco, 45, to Lakshman Rao Nagar and hacked him to death in front of a building.

Police said the victim was killed in front of a particular building because 16-year-old Daniel, the son of Andrew, a daily-wager, had reportedly lost his life after a fall from this building on October 28. Andrew held Bosco’s son responsible for the death of Daniel.

The four accused were said to be the associates of Daniel.

Daniel and Bosco’s son were reportedly seen on the terrace on October 28, and had waged a bet for jumping off the terrace and landing on the sand below.

“However, the boy’s jump from the building proved fatal upsetting his father, who threatened to file a police complaint. But later they had struck a deal that he would not lodge the complaint if he was paid Rs 30,000,” sources said.

Andrew sent his men on Sunday allegedly because he had lost patience with Bosco, who was yet to pay him the money.

Police said that the victim had been attacked with sickles and that he died on the spot. Preliminary investigation has revealed that they even had a fight over the non-payment of money before the accused attacked and killed the victim, the police said.

While the accused surrendered themselves at the Koramangala police station, they were moved to the Adugodi police station under whose jurisdiction the incident took place. Adugodi police have registered a case of murder.
