Youth stabbed to death

Around 10 pm, two gangs from the same community clashed near Sujatha touring talkies in Shamanana Garden, Goripalya, and attacked few youths in the area. In the melee, Fauzia Ghouse, a welder, was stabbed to death.

 Sources said, Ghouse, who had been arrested in connection with an attempt to murder case, had been enlarged on bail recently. JJ Nagar has been tense after Friday's group clash. Three KSRP platoons were deployed in the area after the last week's  clashes. By late Monday evening, the department after assessing the situation had called back one platoon.

Senior police officers who rushed to the spot insisted that Ghouse's murder was not related to last week's incident.

Police and locals suspect a local goon Arif Pasha and his son Imran were behind today's murder. The police also believe Anu and Zahir, known rowdies of the area, could also be behind the murder.
