Two history-sheeters killed in separate incidents

Two history-sheeters were murdered in separate incidents in Bengaluru.  The victim was Rajan, 36, a real estate broker, who was stabbed to death by Sunil and his cousin Rajendra alias Kallu in Muniswamappa Layout near LR Bande in DJ Halli police station limits on Thursday night.

The police have arrested both the suspected assailants.  Rajan had been living with his family in Nagawara, but around 10 years ago, he left home and was residing in Kothanur.

Also, there were a couple of cases against him at KG Halli police station. According to the police, on Thursday around 8 pm, Rajan went to Nisarga Bar in the same area to meet his childhood friend Emanuel and asked him to return Rs 50,000 he had borrowed. Both of them consumed alcohol and left the bar around 10.30 pm, as the bar was being shut. Rajan asked Emanuel for the money and they both started arguing.

They walked towards the parking lot of Balaji Tent house, a shop nearby, and started assaulting each other. Meanwhile, Sunil, who runs the parking lot, asked them to leave the place and not to fight there.

Rajan abused Sunil and asked him to mind his business. Sunil went and informed his cousin brother Rajendra alias Kallu, who came to the spot. The duo attacked Rajan and stabbed him repeatedly and fled.

The passersby heard Rajan’s screams and found him lying in a pool of blood. They shifted him to a nearby private hospital where he was declared brought dead. The police, who were informed, visited the spot and gathered information about the incident and arrested Sunil and Rajendra.

Hacked to death

In the second incident, a 42-year-old history-sheeter was hacked to death by rival gang members on Basaveshwaranagar Main Road on Friday evening.

According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Puttaraju, a history-sheeter with Kamakshipalya police station. He used to earn his living by renting out autorickshaws and lending money for interest.

Around 6.30 pm, he was riding his two-wheeler when he was stopped and assaulted by a few people, who are suspected to be his rivals, who later fled. Puttaraju was found lying in a pool of blood. The police shifted him to a hospital, but he was declared brought dead.

Bro was jailed, got bail

A few months ago, Puttaraju’s brother, Tommy, had murdered one Dileep in Kempegowda Layout. He was sent to jail, but had come out on bail. It is suspected that Dileep's associates might have murdered Puttaraju.

The police are on the look out for the assailants. A case has been registered at the Basaveshwaranagar police station.
