Youth hacked to death

A five-member gang hacked a young man to death on Kanakapura Road on the outskirts of the City under Talaghattapura police station limits on Thursday, allegedly over an old rivalry.

The victim has been identified as Ganesh, 21, a resident of Konanakunte. He was returning home when the assailants, brandishing lethal weapons, chased him on motorcycles near Raghuvanahalli around 7.30 pm. They hacked him to death and ran away.

Police said Ganesh was not a history-sheeter, but was involved in a few petty crimes reported under Subramanyapura police station limits.

He worked as a real estate agent, brokering house rental and lease deals.
