Double murder
The CCB sleuths have arrested a man in connection with the murder of two members of his own family. Frank Anthony alias Frank (30) of Kanakapura Main Road, in connivance with his relative Srinivas, had allegedly murdered his own grand mother-in-law Lourd Mary of Magadi Road and decamped with her jewellery on August 8 last. The accused had also reportedly clubbed Srinivas to death when he refused to part with the booty left after repaying the former's debts, on August 9.

Frank had conspired to eliminate Lourd Mary for gain after becoming bankrupt in his business. For this, he took the help of Srinivas. On August 9, he brought her near Laggere saying her daughter Rajamma's condition was critical. There, he smashed her head with an iron rod, took away her jewellery and gave her a deadly blow with a stone slab. The next day, both the accused sold the jewellery for Rs 1.05 lakhs.Frank paid off his debts with the amount. But when Srinivas refused to part with the remaining booty, Frank murdered him too in a Nilgiri grove in Begur on August 9.
Later, in order to avoid suspicion, he attended the funeral of Srinivas. City Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari had handed over the case to the CCB on November 18. After preliminary investigation, the CCB sleuths concluded that one of the relatives of the deceased was behind the double murder. They zeroed in on Frank and during the questioning, he admitted to the crime, the police said.
