3 held for Madikeri murder

The Kodagu police on Tuesday arrested three persons in connection with the killing of a man during the Tipu Jayanthi celebrations in Madikeri on Nov 10.

Shahul Hameed, who was shot at on November 10, had died at a Mysuru hospital the next day. The suspects are P U Kaverappa alias Kavan (31), S H Bhishma alias Nanda (36) and K R Ramesh (45). Kodagu SP Varthika Katiyar told reporters the three had decided to avenge the death of Devapanda Kuttappa, the district organising secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad. Kuttappa died in the stone-throwing that ensued during the Tipu Jayanthi celebrations.
