Armed gang creates ruckus at City resort

A gang of more than people, armed with lethal weapons, allegedly created a ruckus over a personal dispute at Meenakshi Meadows, a resort on Hulimangala Road in Jigani late on Tuesday night.

Some workers of the resort fled to safety noticing the incident. There were two CCTV cameras which captured the incident, said the police.

A case of dacoity

B Ramesh, Superintendent of Police, Bangalore Rural district, termed the incident a case of dacoity. The police would probe the incident from all angles and arrest the suspects, he said. 

It is the second such incident in the area. An unknown gang carried out a similar attack on Satellite Club in Kengeri on the night of April 1. The gangsters had fled with valuables worth around Rs 7 lakh then. 

The police suspected that the same gang was involved in both the cases.
