KSRTC staffer ends life

A KSRTC employee was found dead at his residence in Seshadripuram.

Murthy, 52, a native of Tiptur, who worked as a tools in-charge in the accounts section at the Head office in Shanthinagar, had allegedly consumed poison. His wife and son returned home from their relative’s house only to find him unconscious.

He was immediately rushed to a hospital where he died on Thursday, police said.

Murthy was depressed that his younger daughter was not yet married, the police added.

8 arrested for murders

The Electronics City police claimed to have solved two separate murder cases which were reported in May, by arresting eight persons.

The police arrested five persons – Tanveer Ilahi, Taheer Pasha, Sheik Muzamil, Imran Pasha and Fazil Ahmed – in connection with the murder of Baba, 30, of Begur.
The police said Tanveer Ilahi, who is a distant relative of Baba, was also involved in another murder in Varthur police station limits.

Following a fight with Baba in Devarachikannahalli fair, Ilahi and his aides plotted to murder him, the police added.

Ilahi invited Baba to a party  at an isolated place on NICE Road, where he and his associates hacked Baba to death and dumped the body in a drain one kilometre away from the crime scene, the police said. They threw the weapons in another drain on NICE Road.

In another case, the police arrested painters John Lewis, Anthony Raj and Balraj, of Begur, on the charge of murdering Vijay Kumar, 28, of Gadag.

The suspects had slit his throat a fortnight ago near Elenahalli Gate at Surakshanagar, Begur, and fled with his cellphone to Velankanni in Tamil Nadu.

The police said they had hid the weapons at a farm in Begur which have also been seized. The suspects had sold Vijay’s cellphone to a mobile shop and the police could trace the suspects based on the call details.

The three are in police custody for interrogation.
