Rivals bludgeon rowdy with hollow brick

 A history-sheeter was bludgeoned to death by a six-member gang at Kirloskar Colony, West of Chord Road, north Bengaluru, around Wednesday midnight.

Raju, 32, got drunk and picked a fight with the gang over a financial matter. The men pushed him down and bludgeoned him with a hollow brick. Police said they had arrested the suspects and identified three of them as Mahesh, Ganesh and Kiran.

Raju had a criminal record with a history sheet being opened against him at the Mahalakshmi Layout police station in 2014. He was jobless and often fought with his neighbours and relatives over financial matters, police said.
