Hassan: Bodies of two people with bullet injuries were found in an alleged murder-cum-suicide incident at Hoysala Nagar in the city on Thursday afternoon.

While Ali was found dead outside the car with bullet injuries on his head, Asif was found dead with bullet injuries inside the car.

They were said to be friends and were involved in real estate business and ginger cultivation. Differences over business dealings is suspected to be the reason behind the incident. Ali was a native of Delhi and had been residing in Hassan for several years.

The SP said, “It is said that two people had come to inspect a site at Hoysala Nagar in Hassan city at around 12.30 pm. Later, they were coming towards the car talking. Gunshots were heard after a few minutes. The people living nearby rushed to the spot to find one body lying on the roadside and another inside the car.” It is suspected that they might have quarreled with each other over the site issue. Following this, Asif, who was in the car, might have shot Ali to death and ended his life by shooting himself. The forensic experts are inspecting the spot and a probe has been initiated, she said.
