Ladies bar owner who took on police ends life

The owner of a ladies bar was found hanging at his house in Sarakki, JP Nagar, south Bengaluru, on Sunday, police said.

B N Jeevan, 36, the owner of Kajal Bar and Restaurant in Gandhinagar, had been depressed after fracturing his legs in a road accident last year. He was the vice president of Bangalore Ladies Working Bar and Restaurant Owners Association. A ladies bar is where women serve liquor.

The association had taken on the Upparpet police and accused them of extorting money. Jeevan’s bar was raided by police several times. He also feared for his life as he had plenty of business rivals and had sought police protection. A history-sheeter had tried to kill him in his bar in 2014. Besides, he also faced financial problems. He had separated from his wife and was staying with his mother.
