Four men 'kill' youth after he scolds them for smoking near his home
A 32-year-old man was hacked to death by a group of four men after he scolded them for smoking and causing a ruckus outside his home in central Bengaluru in the early hours of Sunday, police said.

Harish, of ‘B’ Street, Ashoknagar, woke up around 2 am on hearing a loud noise as a Dasara procession was being taken out. He came out and saw four men smoking and chattering away right outside his home. He got angry at them and scolded them for smoking outside his home at the late hour.

He asked them to give up smoking, saying it was bad for their health. An argument ensued but the men eventually went away, a police officer said.

Returned with weapons
They, however, returned after some time, carrying lethal weapons. On seeing Harish outside his home, they waylaid him, hacked him to death and ran away, the officer added.

Harish’s parents took him to Mallya Hospital where he died hours later. The officer said they had “certain leads” about the suspects and would track them down soon.
