However, past midnight, Ravi and his gang, in an inebriated state returned to the spot and started throwing the cooking equipment to the road. Kempanna’s son Kantha called his friends and the two groups fought. One of them stabbed Ravi in the thigh. A profusely bleeding Ravi died on the way to hospital.

The cops have detained Srikanth, Pradeep, Chandan and others for interrogation.

Venkatesh, a native of Tamil Nadu, is the victim. Police said Venkatesh’s family had deserted him a decade ago because of his drinking habit.

He was also thrown out his brother’s house for the same reason.

Venkatesh under the influence of alcohol quarreled over trivial issues, said police who suspect it to be the reason behind his murder.
