Shahapur police cracked the murder case of a person who was killed at Kulkarni Galli Main Road in Old-Belagavi on Thursday. They arrested the six accused within 24 hours of the crime along with the blood-stained sharp weapons used for the act.

An old rivalry has been cited as the reason for the murder.
