Rowdy chased, hacked to death by rivals

A 30-year-old history-sheeter was hacked to death by a rival gang in Guddadahalli, Hebbal, in northern Bengaluru on Wednesday morning.

The police gave his name as Sathish alias Gunda, a resident of Nagenahalli. He was a history-sheeter at Hebbal and Vyalikaval police stations. Previously, he worked as a cab driver but his family said his most recent occupation was real estate business.

Around 9.45 am, Sathish was waylaid by four men riding on two motorcycles in Guddadahalli. Sathish saw them and started running. The four men alighted from their bikes and went after him. They caught him near a bakery and attacked him with sharp weapons before fleeing. The police, meanwhile, received an alert and rushed to the spot. They rushed a grievously injured Sathish to hospital, but he died on the way.

A senior police officer suspected old rivalry behind the murder. “But the exact motive is yet to be identified. We have formed two specials teams to catch the people behind the attack which seems well-planned. At present, we have certain clues about the attackers,” he said. Sathish was an accused in several cases of attempt to murder and armed robbery. A case of murder has been registered at the Hebbal police station.
