Man kills relative over rivalry

Raghuram, 35, a resident of Manjunath Nagar, was allegedly murder by his relative Mallesh, over an old rivalry in Channamanakere Achchukattu Police Station limits on Sunday night.

Mallesh, who was  arrested, and deceased Raghuram were both autorickshaw drivers, police said. Family elders finalised a wedding alliance for Mallesh with Raghuram’s sister Latha Bai. Months later, Raghuram urged his family members to cancel the alliance due to Mallesh’s habits, police said. By then, Mallesh and Latha Bai were in love. They eloped to Tamil Nadu, got married there and returned to City. They started living separately in the same locality.

A few elders intervened and ensured a comprise formula between the two families. Members of  both family started visiting each other's houses, police added.
Raghuram, however, nursed a grievance against Mallesh believing he had tarnished the reputation of both families and this led to regular fights between the two. Following on such row recently in Chikkballapur, Raghuram thrashed a few members of Mallesh’s family.

Mallesh and Raghuram, after a visit to a local bar on Sunday, nearing Vidyapeetha Circle, picked a fight again, and in the melee, Mallesh attacked Raghuram with a hallow brick. Raghuram, who collapsed bleeding profusely, was taken to a nearby hospital where he died later, police said.

Being alerted, the police arrested Mallesh in connection with the murder.
