5 auto drivers held for murder

The police have arrested five autorickshaw drivers, who reportedly ganged up to brutally murder  a 26-year-old colleague in northern Bengaluru last week.

Rakesh (22), Mani (25), Vinay (20), Rajashekhar (26) and Chandan (25) had quarrelled with Androse over parking at an autorickshaw stand. Androse  is said to have assaulted two of them. The suspects vowed revenge.  

In the early hours of November 14, they called him on the pretext of offering a truce and attacked him with lethal weapons.  They smashed his head with a cement block.  

The police found Androse's body near the metro station in  Mahalakshmi Layout.

They rounded up some of the auto drivers for interrogation. The police  corroborated the suspects' statements by reviewing the  footage of the CCTV cameras installed in and around the crime spot.  

All the  five have been remanded in  judicial custody.
