9 held for murder

The mobile phone of a person murdered eight months ago in Tavarekere has led to the arrest of nine persons allegedly involved in it.

Mohammad Akbar (25) and Habeeb-ul-Rahman (24) of Arakere Lakshmi Layout, Khaja Mohiuddin (32), Abdul Rahman (23) and Arshad (24) of Gurappanpalya, Syed Nemat (22) and Imran Khan (24) of Bismillah Nagar, Safeer Ahmad (24) of Balajinagar and Zaheer Khan (23) of Anekal had reportedly murdered one Madeyan, hailing from Dharmapuri district in Tamil Nadu after they found him with one Hajira of Subhashnagar at a park behind Tavarekere Petrol Bunk.

They were angry with his relationship with the girl of their religion. Before escaping from the crime scene, they had taken away his cell phone. Later, they passed it on to one Abdul Hafeez (18) of Marenahalli, who used it for a day before giving it to Arshad. The police traced the mobile phone in possession of one Taiyab Pasha (18) of Thilaknagar and Abdul Hafeez. This led the police to the accused. Several cell phones, a van and six two-wheelers have been recovered from them.
