Gang beats man to death

A 25-year-old man was beaten to death by eight men following a quarrel over smoking near Yellamma temple at Chunchunkatte in Subramanayapura area on Thursday night.

Police gave the name of the victim as Uday, a resident of Chunchunkatte. His friend Dilip was seriously injured in the fight. According to the police, around 11 pm, Uday and Dilip were standing near a bakery, where another group of friends was smoking cigarettes. Annoyed, Uday asked them move away. Heated exchanges ensued and the shopkeeper pacified them and asked them to leave.

Uday and Dilip left the place and went to an isolated place nearby, where they were consuming alcohol. Around eight people arrived there and attacked them with wooden logs and fled.

Hearing the commotion, residents who rushed out of their houses found Uday and Dilip lying on the ground. They shifted them to Nimhans as they had suffered serious head injuries. Uday did not respond to treatment and died on Friday morning. Dilip’s condition is said to be critical, added the police.

“We have detained six men and are looking for the others. The area in and around Yellamma temple is considered to be sensitive and security has been beefed up to avoid any untoward incident,” police said.
